lyrics

Always watching, but never around.
I feel cold and sink to the ground.
I can sense it, but I can't see it.
It wraps a chain around my heart,
convincing me that the end is a start.
I feel a disconnect from all I know.

This power shackles me so I gasp for air.
They tell me (they tell me)
help is there,
but all I’ve seen is despair.
I've felt the autumn breeze
and I've let sand sink beneath my feet.
Now I can't feel a thing.

I take my every step along this crooked path.
Why do you stay with me?
Stay with me.

A light shines and you're blind,
you don't see what I see.
(What I see).
The darkness never leaves,
it hides in all you see;
all you see in your memories.

The darkness, it never leaves.
It hides in all you see.
It takes a breath with you when you wake.
It takes the colour from the smile you fake.
(From the smile you fake).
It's with you when you wake.

Always watching, but never around.
Silent sentry, calm and profound.
You hold your will,
so tranquil and still.
I break the chains off my heart every day,
keeping my mind from drifting away,
but I know now it will never leave.

Silent sentry, why do you walk with me?
I’m falling, I'm falling behind.
It haunts me and leaves me in pieces.
I swear I’ll never give in to you.
Silent sentry, why do you walk with me?
I’m falling, I'm falling behind.
It haunts and leaves me in pieces.
I’ll never give in to you,
but you'll just see right through.

I don’t feel a thing.
I've felt the winter breeze and I've seen it;
it lies inside of me.
How will I feel a thing?
