Round the clock, it never stops Time becomes an enemy within My stomach burns, I feel it turn Over and over again Run through the street, my silent feet Crash through the night but no one hears People in need, why do we feed the hand that bites the hand that feeds? And I can feel the emptiness build up inside of me My heart is racing they grow near The chase is on, the damage done Why must I be the only one? For others lies, I pay the price But no one hears the martyr's cries! This same old face, a different place for silent fools, I run the race of time The enmity I bring now the unfocused truth I close my eyes and visualize the enemy is you You, sent me here and all these fears cannot seem to calm me now So here I stand at the edge of this desert and endless sea of shifting sand Why must light and dark wage war on this battlefield? O'er this bitter soul inside this hollow man And I can feel the silent emptiness of pride in me this endless facing of my fears I'm just a man, this empty man My enemy comes from within My destiny, this has to be A future no one else can see With what I've learned, my life is turned With every step, the surface burns away I cannot run any longer There is nothing left to run to Everyone I have ever loved, I have destroyed I must indulge my final breath How can I show myself now? The world will see it's really me How can I wash this blood from my fingers? Everyone can see through me The chase is on again I hope these pointless lies that they devise will soon come to an end I'm so alone again a silent soldier searching for a cause praying for salvation waiting for... waiting...waiting...waiting... Have they forgotten me? ...I am forgiven now.
