  • Cannot recognize the face before me
    It's unfamiliar
    Time has left me broken down and homely
    Can you still see me undisguised?

    Outside the window of your eyes
    Clinging to the memory of your prime
    After many years the road you wandered
    Left you here alone, deprived of others

    On your toes or on your heels
    There's a line drawn on the floor
    Where the blood has dried, there is no shine

    Have another go my friend
    You see I can't feel anymore
    While you question, just who the hell am I?

    Is this all I am?
    Given all I can?
    Is this all I am?
    'Til the end of time
    Never knowing why

    Ghosts and damage, no advantage for me
    I'm past believing
    Understand the price you pay disarming
    When you can leave it all behind

    Outside of the window of your eyes
    Clinging to the memory of your prime
    After many years the road you wandered
    Left you here alone, deprived of others

    On your toes or on your heels
    There's a hole worn in the floor
    Where the blood has dried, there is no shine

    Have another go my friend
    You see I can't feel anymore
    While you question, just who the hell am I?

    Is this all I am?
    Given all I can?
    Is this all I am?
    'Til the end of time
    Never knowing why

    Cannot recognize the face before me
