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....
