Track Name: Mirage
All the time spent suffering
Suffering in the heart
Suffering of the mind
Succumbing to a slow and painful existence
Spending what little time you had
Catching up on sleep
Trying to build up the stength
To go on for another day
One more fucking day
We are all just victims of the human condition
Who once were friends with no identity
Are now strangers with a false sense of self
No shoulders to cry on
No fucking sympathy
Only loathing.
Wandering through this opaque bleakeness
There is no guiding light
You're crawling on all fours
Searching for an escape
