    As I drift away... far away from you,
    I feel all alone in a crowded room,
    Thinking to myself
    "There's no escape from this
    fear
    regret
    loneliness..."

    Visions of love and hate
    A collage behind my eyes
    Remnants of dying laughter
    Echoes of silent cries

    I wish I didn't know now what
    I never knew then...
    Flashback
    Memories punish me once again
    Sometimes I remember all the pain
    that I have seen.
    Sometimes I wonder what might
    have been...

    Visions of love and hate
    A collage behind my eyes
    Remnants of dying laughter
    Echoes of silent cries

    And sometimes I despair
    At who I've become
    I have to come to terms
    With what I've done

    The bittersweet taste of fate
    We can't outrun the past
    Destined to find an answer
    A strength I never lost
    I know there is a way,
    My future is not set,
    For the tide has turned
    But still I never learned to live
    without regret.

    Anathema "Regret"

    Through The Other Side

    So welcome to the No Man’s Land
    Where you can finally face yourself
    Fear of feeling something real
    Is your friend now
    There’s no need to run

    So welcome to the No Man’s Land
    Where nothing is as it seems
    Mysteries hidden from you
    Six feet under
    And six feet above

    And to feel your heart this way
    Before it gets too late

    The moon began to split in half
    And the darkness could be touched
    Blindfolded
    You’re trying to find a way
    To the bottom of your soul

    But I can see all your scars
    That you wish you could hide
    And I won’t let you remember
    What it was like
    When you were here before

    And to hear your voice again
    And to feel your touch this way
    Before it gets too late

    I realized something tonight about people who live in Northern New England. In my current socio-economic group, call it "mill workers" if you like(it works for me), people who are native to the area, are "empty". For the most part just sort of void of being able to express any emotions, which doesn't allow you to really "connect" with anyone. After so many years of that, your heart and soul are craving something that you can never find.

    If only I could leave this place and GO........back to the World.
    If only....
    If....
    I....
    am fucking finished here, I am done.

    The World has passed by me and all that is left is a shadow....
