Emergency Gate – The Green Mile lyrics

I've been down just for a while
Close my eyes and I am far away
So far away from myself
Take a breath and realize
I'm too weak and hiding far away
Far away behind my mask

Am I forsaken?
Am I a coward?
Am I a laughter?
All I ever wanted is no more pain
Just a little more brave
Oh, blame, let me be the one...

Have you ever known what it's like to be?
To bury all mistakes and prejudices

And when I exceed the line
I admit I've lost control
No amnesty for daunting and frightening you again

Reprieve me before I'm adjudged
And save me before I fall
I know I'm lost
Don't judge me by my masquerade

Have you ever known what it's like to be?
To bury all mistakes and fuck you

In this time of need you're gone
It can't rain all the time
I'll have to stay
I'll have to die
That I am sure

I have no illusions of immortality
I will await my death
Long before death finds me

I can't recall anything from yester-night
Just a broken bottle right beside my empty bed
My forsaken life is just a broken hell
Insanity is hard to tell

And when I exceed the line
I admit I've lost control
No amnesty for daunting and frightening you once again

We each owe a death
There are no exceptions
But sometimes the green mile seems so long
