There is nothing left of me
There's no soul in this beaten bag of flesh
Because I gave it to you

And now YOU carry the burden of my woe
The brittle memories of rage repressed
And you withstand the fury of my fickle emotions

You are the only thing that keeps me here
My food, my oxygen, my drug, my inspiration
My love, you are everything to me

I don't deserve you
I don't deserve life, or like it, but I keep going for you
I'd kill myself, but I don't deserve death
And you don't deserve the agony

I deserve nothing
