Crazy Eight

Burn Away

Years have passed/I’m the only one left
I got nothing to do but count my regrets
And I do not think that I’m afraid
But I feel anxious as my semblance fades

So I live my life vicariously
Through different masks that I called me
And I do not think that it’s an excuse
It’s as asphyxiating as a tightened noose

So I…

Light up
Then I burn away
And I…
Light up
Then I burn away

I’ve lost the game that I had played
So I ignominiously return to my grave
Where I live within myself
Wishing that I lived within someone else

I’ve lost all that I had gained
I got nothing to lose but everything to disdain
And I do all I can to stay alive
But I’m not even sure if I wanna survive

So I…

Light up
Then I burn away
And I…
Light up
Then I burn away

I’m not too sure if I’ll awake today
Just to see what else has gone array
And I’m not too sure if I will rouse today
I’m too afraid to see if my qualms are here to stay…
