You're always saying that there's something wrong. 
I'm starting to believe it's you're playing along. 
Death came around, forced to hear it's song 
And know tomorrow can't be depended on 

Seen the home inside your head. 
Unlocked doors and unmade beds 

Open sores unattended 
Let me say just once that 

I have faced it, a life wasted. 
I'm never going back again. 
I escaped it,a life wasted. 
I'm never going back again. 
Having tasted, a life wasted. 
I'm never going back again. 

The world awaits just up the stairs 
Leave the pain for someone else 
Nothing back there for you to find 
Or was it you you left behind 

You're always saying you're too weak to be Strong. 
You're harder on yourself than just about Anyone 

Why swim the channel just to get this far? 
Halfway there, why would you turn around? 

Darkness comes in waves...tell me, 
Why invite it to stay? 

You're one with negativity 
Yes, comfort is an energy 
But why let the sad song play? 

I have faced it, a life wasted 
I'm never going back again 

Oh I escaped it, a life wasted 
I'm never going back again 

Having tasted, a life wasted 
I'm never going back again 

Oh I erased it, a life wasted 
I'm never going back again
