lyrics

What do I know of pain?
Should I know suffering?
Having everything taken away from me
Now it so happens
I can't move
A question pierces me
Will this be my deathbed?

The darkest places in my head
Replay the sequence of events
Leading up to this hospital bed
My will struggled to survive
On the chance I'd see you again

I was trapped
My body broken
Restrained on this bed
As the waves of shame hit
Its too late to regret
Can I try and forget

Would you forgive me?
No one seems to give me a chance
I didn't mean to abandon
Your hand slipped from my grasp

I still remember
Calling out your name
Waving at the distance
As we go our separate ways

Days continued to escape me
Numb from all the medicine
Aching pain the alternative
I almost lost hope

Diving into memories
Was the only escape
I tried to block out the accident
That took my son away

Where is the brighter day?
Is it too far to see?
Does it even exist?
Can I get up to face the pain
of your name on a grave

What do I know of pain?
Should I know suffering?
Having everything taken away from me
Now it so happens
I can move
By will, by force and grind
I'll stand at the cemetery
