From Indian Lakes – Our Father Is Missing lyrics

Though I look like a human I am lifeless, I assure you I am nothing at all
And when I try to be human my own flesh keeps me from doing a thing
And all I see are the faces of the people I've betrayed
And the ones who gave up at the sight of the fake that I've become
God, what a fake I've become
God, what a fake I've become

Who was I before this? Who am I now?
I am breathing, barely breathing
I am breathing, barely...
She can see right through me
And he can barely see me
I am a ghost but something less I'm sure

The items I carry are all I possess
And my hands have delivered less life than death
And my heart holds the ashes of the people that I've claimed over time
My eyes have seen people doing terrible things
But at night when I close them I can pretend you're extinct
And there's no one to remind me that God can see everything
That I have done
Oh God, what have I done?

Who was I before this? Who am I now?
I am breathing, barely breathing
I am breathing barely

And I've been living this way since the day that I was born
And I've been trying to change but I am so easily bored
By the idea of saying "thank you" and "how are you?" until I go to sleep
But I'd like to be loved and I'm trying my best
But the devil's inside me and he's coming out through my chest
And he is whispering in my ear that,
Everyone in the world would like you dead

My God what have we become?
We've fallen along the way and now were to heavy for you to pick up,

God I am only a boy
Whose mother tried to raise him right but father was only as
Strong as the world would allow
And now he's nowhere to be found
