My name is Blank
Everything you are
I take it away

I am Blank
Once alive and eager
Now only grey

When you're Blank
It threatens you with the dark
If you say you won't stay

Grey and Blank
Today and tomorrow
All happiness faded away

Run from Blank
Comfortably numb
We wither away

More than Blank
Take back your life
Open up to the shades

Between dark and light
The sun only shines
If there can be a night

No more Blank
Before grey fades to black
The night with no end
When Blank still remains
It's night without end
And the illusion of day
But no light shines within

What the fuck is…

Led to this very moment, and changed our lives
Shattered my…

Working long hours underneath the warehouse lights
Where it’s never quite day and it’s never quite night
Counting the hours until the time is right
Gotta get that pay; can’t afford to sleep tonight

Sleep a couple hours in the bright daylight
Run a couple errands while there’s still a little…

It’s hard to be alone with my thoughts
But you make it all okay
Alone with my feelings they get dark
But you make it all go away

When I look into your eyes
I have never felt this way
You’re all I can think of when we’re apart
And I hope that…
