I look inside the depths of my soul but instead of light there's just a black hole.
I look within to find out who I want to be but instead I find the empty shell of me.
I seek solace in the words of men of God but instead I find lies and fraud.
Then I turn to the caressing whispers of nigh but instead I find they are only saying goodbye.
I seek wisdom from pages long since yellowed with age but instead I find merely lies on the page.
I pull myself close to heal my wounds but instead I feel the pull of the moon.
I heed its call with my soul as offering but instead I find myself more suffering.
I came to you then with my soul laid bare but instead you turned and left it there.
Instead of love, instead of life, instead of wisdom, I have this life.
It's a life I can't live for another day so instead I will just be on my way.
