lyrics

NOTHING IS REAL:
My tears are crying as they're pouring out my eyes

With life suspended, I can't be afraid to try
I watch my chances -- one by one, they pass me by
And I know where I stand, and I know how I feel
But deep inside I know somehow that none of this is real

And I know how I feel

My feelings come and take me from this bed inside my home
Take me to a place where I can live and die alone

And I know how I feel -- I'm feeling unprepared
I'm not sure if I'll make it -- why am I so scared?
I'm told that god is with me, but I know he's not there
The light shines through and now my eyes are blinded by the glare on my soul

My tears are crying as they're pouring out my eyes

I feel so insecure; I'm feeling so unsafe
I'm feeling so uncomfortable; I'm feeling so afraid
I hate and love and cry so loud
Make it go away

My tears are crying as they're pouring out my eyes

Deep in my soul I feel like there's nothing left for me to be
Here there is no madness; it's the calm before the storm
Sheltered from the world, I'm a bitter, old man that you cannot see

You can run along faster, but I swear I'll catch up to you
You can try to run and hide, but I swear I'll find you now

'Cause nothing here is real
