My heart has gone dark and savage
And my feelings have run cold and hostile
I am all lost and alone within my thoughts
I got no hand to hold, no shoulder to rest upon

I have buried my warmth and uncovered the heat
Deep, deep within it arises
I’m hiding myself, hiding my self
From this world of sin, this world of misdeeds

These friends who once loved, who once cared
Are now turning their heads from me, away from me
If only I could rip open my heart,
So all could truly see my intentions and hopes.

Destined to meet new beings,
Whom are wanting to grow near, close
The closer they get, the more they hurt
Everyone I must fear, must fear
Is there anyone to earn my trust?
Worthy of my plain thoughts?
Am I always this torn apart?
