I have come to terms with my
existence,
taking everything that's pushed my
way,
Seeing everything stay the same,
watching my life grow weaker each
day.

But I know which path i have
chosen,
and I know where it will lead me.
If I choose not to stay, to keep
everything, I know I will never be free.

I think I will be better off
leaving,
though I know the pain will be
great.
What can I do? I know now that
I have chosen my own fate.

Chosen the path that so few walk,
I guess I thought what else is
there?
Well, there's nothing for me now.
Any more, i don't think i care.

This is my life, and I live in
this
world that is dragging me down.
And they scream out, "how can you
do this?"
as they bury me to where i can't
be found.

But I will remain quiet, and
I will keep this buried deep inside,
Even though I know you are free,
and I myself have died.
