Lyrics:

In this state again
I don't want to be near this energy
And this war I wage
Is inside of me. Who's the enemy?

Darkness comes over me
Making me feel so alone
Wasted thoughts
Memories that I don't want anymore. Hand of the enemy.

Idle thoughts come to life
Spinning me out of control
Truth or lies, the pain is real
But I'm trying, I'm trying.

Mesmerized, I fail to breath
I can't laugh, I can't believe
I'm eroding from the inside out

Paralyzed, I fail to be
A dark cloud devours me
I'm so lonely, what have I become?

Darkness over me, turn my light on
Come and set me free. Your love is all I need
Turn and look at me and hold that smile girl
We don't need to speak. Your touch is all… your touch is all I need.

Empty shell, I'm feeling weak
I kneeled down but failed to speak
I'm self-loathing, where's this coming from?

I let you down, I let you see
I'm not the man I need to be
I'm so sorry, you need so much more

Darkness over me, turn my light on
Come and set me free. Your love is all I need
Turn and look at me and hold that smile girl
We don't need to speak. Your touch is all… your touch is all I need.
