Other than that I'm fine

Everywhere I go
Inflicts nothing but agonizing dread
Everything I say
It seems it's already been said
Everything I do
It appears it's already been done
I try something new
But I guess I'm no fun

Other than that I'm fine

Everytime I try to remember who I am
I end up forgetting who I am
Everytime I accomplished something planned
Within myself there's nothing but sand
Everywhere in my head is in the past
Nowhere in reality is my head in the present
Everywhere where everyone is is in the future

Other than that I'm fine

Every foe I make beats me
Every friend I make betrays me
Every brother and sister I had forgets me
Every God I worshipped asks nothing of me

Correct me all you want
Break me all you want
Judge me all you want
Beat me all you want

It doesn't change your fate does it?
Picture your satisfaction of my suffering
Then darkness...

and alone.

Or you could listen
Or you could join me
Or you could help me
Or you could love me

And perhaps the fate you seek will become
