Draining patience

Floating through this wave, a devoid flow runs in me
Steering my way in, I wish to drown into a world unknown!

No more lies, no more tears, no more joys to churn,
No curses on my pride, not a word, not again, not now.

A silence of insanity, inside of me has grown
Isolating me from a world I've long known

Let me live in me … let me cry, let me groan!
Let me live my life … let me wear this crown of thorns!

No more lies, no more tears, no more happiness will ever be born
No one would mourn the day I die, or the day I would be torn

I may be the worst that you may have seen but wish you discern the best
I will be happy the way I am, so let me live, let me die in my quest

Let me live in me … let me cry, let me groan!
Let me live my life … let me wear this crown of thorns!

Tell me nightmare to come and haunt my sleep, as I lay alone with all my tears,
Tell me Lord to give me strength and help me recognize, conquer all my fears.

Give me back those days of light, those days of might
Let me live without those thoughts of sheer fright

And with all the pain I gave you while,
I know that for once I made you smile.

I hope you forgive me for all the memories that ache,
And remember people for all the good they make.
