Alone


Alone I walk the streets at night
Alone I deflate myself with this razor-sharp knife
Alone I was, alone I stay
Alone I live this life like a bomb site

Alone I sleep, alone I eat
Alone I breathe, alone I cheat
Alone I walk, alone I run
Alone I weep, alone I shriek

Alone, the bubble in which I remain
Alone I puncture my wounded veins
Alone I am, no love to send
Alone I am, astray to the end.
