It's written clear across my face - I don't deserve to be alive
Yet no-one here - seems to notice it all.
I can make you all believe
That I'm a good person
But I can't erase the dark that hides inside my mind.

Why am I never forgiven?
Why can't I escape my mind?
These high stone walls feel like a prison...
Wish my wings could set me free.

Why am I never forgiven?
Why can't I escape my mind?
These high stone walls feel like a prison...
Wish my wings could set me free.

All that I've ever I done for you is
Selfish and hollow - though it's true
I wish I could be
Better than I am
I'm a leech, a hypocrite, an undeserving waste of skin
Who wants so badly...
To replace all of me.

Why am I never forgiven?
Why can't I escape my mind?
These high stone walls feel like a prison...
Wish my wings could set me free.

Why am I never forgiven?
Why can't I escape my mind?
These high stone walls feel like a prison...
Wish my wings could set me free.

Everyone I love always
Abandons me
Nothing I believe in is ever
Reality
I'm so tired of this life
Of all the troubles, pain and strife
And so my heart has hardened like a stone.

Why am I never forgiven?
Why can't I escape my mind?
These high stone walls are like a prison...
Wish my wings could set me free.

Why am I never forgiven?
Why can't I escape my mind?
These high stone walls are like a prison...
Wish my wings could set me free.
