    I've been here in this cold for how long I can't tell
    I've dreamed of a warmth but it's just a harsh spell

    My mistress will cut with a blade thick and red
    But my mistriss is me and I'll cut 'till I'm dead
    The pain is release, the pain is my cure
    But I can't stop thinking how it's not very pure

    The dice keep on rolling in the back of my mind
    There counting down life, their counting down time
    I've thrown them against every wall that I've got
    But the same numbers keeping coming, just two dots show up

    I can't keep on going in this role that I've faked
    I look around and see all the people eat cake
    They've got there lives going, they've got things to do
    I've got nothing for them, no answers for you

    But please don't stop trying, I'm not sure how to say
    That I want you to help, I want me to stay
    It's hard to imagine a world where I die
    From old age, with kids and nothing to cry

    But that's not what I want, it's not why I'm here
    I'm here 'cause you need me, that's why I still fear
    When you're gone I'll follow, close behind on your track
    Then mabye I'll shuffle off this weight on my back

    I've know pain and misery in the place that I've built
    And for so long now I've refused any help
    I've looked inward for answers that make sense to me
    It's helped a great deal, it's helped me to see

    I won't always be here to roll those damn dice
    My mistress won't stay, she'll soon say "It's been a slice!"
    And where will I be, still here in the cold
    Where it's hard to keep going, it's hard to keep hold

    But it's such a sad state, I've made of this life
    It's useless and boring and can end with a knife
    But I'll try to stay here for as long as I can
    I know how I'll go, I'll die like a man

    And when I am gone, you'll ask yourself why
    Be assured, you can live, knowing I cried
