past, present, no future

The tides have turned and the nights have gone the sun sets when your having fun theres no love when the lights go out I've falling into the abyss of loneliness isolated forgotten left to wonder if I ever was wanted

I've done so much and yet so little I've gotten so far but can still see the beginning theres nothing I can do to make the fire burn again it only flickers in the wind slowly fading into darkness

The man I once was had been torn to pieces leaving behind a disfigured face lurking in the shadows like a monster from a Steven king novel I have no idea what to expect when all this is over I only know that it cant come quick enough the pain is to much I'm left to wonder why I'm still here.
