Another day passes by
Another attempt at love
Remains unrequited
Why do I even bother ?
I should have learned from the past
I am but a statue
Impervious to love
This punctured heart is mine
Becomes a handful of dust
Hope has now wilted away
Along with these dreams
That became emptiness
As the razor comes closer
I am self destructive
A product of this solitude
I am riddled with shards
One simple wish now dies
Was my request so great?
One simple wish now dies
Was my request so great?
Once again I drown in ist denial
Was it so complicated?
Once again, I`ve been spit upon
Taken with a grain of salt
My life is

    General Commenti've felt like this before, you fall in love with someone who does not want to have anything to do with you, after you get through that you meet another person and the same thing happens again, makes you wonder if you are even meant to be with someone in this earth.

    General Commentwhy does it have to happen... why, when you're so undeniably in love with a person, they go and for no apparent reason decide to break up with you.. then, you can't get over them... no matter who you talk to or who you spend your time with, it's jut not the same? i don't know, but this song fits me perfectly right now... i wish i could just forget... "Once again, I`ve been spit upon
    Taken with a grain of salt "

    General CommentI've been thru this all before, this song is me. The thing is I am still in love with the person I went thru this with. why does it have to happen? No one will know, for now I will just heal myself with Poison the Well and pray things will be ok.

    General CommentI wish that it wasn't so true. This is the most awesome song. PTW rocks, and the lyrics of the song just mean so much. Sadly you fall for someone so hard and they make you feel like they feel the same, and then things just kind of fall apart and it destroys you. Oh yea i know how it feels....oh yea.
