 I hurt myself today 
to see if I still feel 
I focused on the pain 
the only thing that’s real 

The needle tears a hole 
The old familiar sting 
Try to kill it all the way 
But I remember everything 

What have I become 
My sweetest friend 
Everyone I know 
Goes away in the end 

And you could have it all 
My empire of dirt 
I will let you down 
I will make you hurt 


I wear this crown of thorns  
Upon my liars chair  
Full of broken thoughts  
I can not repair  

Beneath the stains of time  
The feelings disappear  
You are someone else  
I am still right here  

What have I become  
My sweetest friend  
Everyone I know  
Goes away in the end  

And you could have it all  
My empire of dirt  
I will let you down  
I will make you hurt  

If I could start again  
A million miles away  
I would keep myself  
I would find a way
