It's eating me away
I said to God
It's rotting my mind
It's like cancer
is there anything, anything at all to numb
the nothingness.
I need a reason to breathe,
It's eating me away.

CHORUS:
Save me from my rage
and my humanity.
I'm more nothing than being.
is this my legacy?
feel it eating me away
Yeah, yeah...

Eating me away
It nibbles at my brain
The question of my existence
And the matter of pain
I shake my fist, I shake my fist
At the cosmos and my insignificance
I need a reason to breathe
Its eating me away.

All that I am, All that I want, all that I lack.
Come on and save me
All that I am, All that I want, all that I lack.
Come on and save me
All that I am, All that I want, all that I lack.
Come on and save me
All that I am, All that I want, all that I lack.
Come on and save me

It's eating me away.

    General CommentThis person seems to think that he is nothing and is not sure what his purpose is in life. All he knows is that he "needs a reason to breath" and is worried that when he is gone is this going to be his "legacy" are people going to remember him for doing nothing. Basically he hates this nothingness and looks at life knowing that to the world he is insignificant compared to the millions of people and the size of the universe and he want someone, God to save him from this nothingness. Well thats my take on it anyway
