"Low"

The place I had to go

Just how far, only I truly know

I'm talking low

How deep can one sink? Let me show ya

Playing the game, hold on, timeout, nice to know ya

Time to fade away, off into the sunset, off into the shadows, off into the trees

Light fading from my eyes, my heart, my soul, time running out on me

In reality it was catching up

My shadow; wandering in my fugue, my out of body experience, I seemed to had lost my mind

Underneath it all, rummaging, digging inside myself to find

Thyself, for it is thyself, that I must know

Don't look at me, I don't exist, so just let me go

Low

Beneath the surface, the prim exterior, the superficial

Down into my melancholy dream

Floating, in my bubble of pain, where no one can hear me scream

Calling out to the devil, calling out to god, calling out to you

You all saw me drifting away, what was one to do?

Helpless spectators to a grotesque display

A mutiny, self mutilation, pain the order of the day

The beautiful boy prince, a vagabond, molting into a man made of virtue and good

Falling down, from ego; the pedestal from which he once stood

Falling down, unto the murderer, who lurk at the bottom of the pit

The murderer in me, the mirror, my image, I succumbeth to it

Under the knife of my own hands

Carving out a new me, a new man

Disgusted by the suffering written on his face

Low, where I had to go for just a taste

Of death, of truth, of reality

A few things I had to study

A few things I had to experience

A few things I had to know

Next time you see me, ask me...what's it like to go so...

Low
