In better days I've been known to listen
I go to waste,
All my time is missing

I'm mapping out my ending,
It's never gonna happen now
These things are condescending
With everybody backing down

You pray to stars that can help you get by
And all at once you forget to try

I'd go there if you let me,
They're never gonna find me now
My life is always empty
And in and out of doubt

You're not coming back for me, these things they will never be
I'm so used to being wrong, so put me where I belong

I'll get back to you,
God knows I try,
But I still lose
And I get back to you,
These days run by,
But I still lose
Angels say they can make you suffer
They give and take like a vicious lover

When all this loses meaning,
You'll never want it back somehow
Awake but still I'm dreaming
And never waking up

[Refrain 1x]

Alone...Where I'm not alone [4x]
