How do I go on with no one beside me
Should I give up hope they’ll ever find me
Should I start over and keep breathing
Or let myself drown in the bleeding
Should I stay here broken and faceless
Or should I find a way to replace this
Should I try to resist the constant agony
Or should I just accept this is the way it had to be
Because the loneliness inside has swallowed me whole
I want to tear it out but I’ve lost control
I try to catch up but there’s nowhere to go
I’m just stuck on the day I was told
I’m left behind

(Behind)
I can’t deny
(The secret I hide in my mind)
I let myself fall behind

(Behind)
I can’t deny
(The secret I hide in my mind)
I let myself fall behind

I’ve lost my way
(I’d do anything to wash away these sins)
It’s hard to run when you’re caged in
I’ve lost my way
(Risking everything when it all begins)
The long road never seems to end

If I run too fast I’ll be breathless
And to walk a thin line is a death wish
If I lie to myself like nothing’s wrong
Than I’ll never see what really has been gone
If I sit here with my hatred
Than I’ll never know if I could make it
I want to reach out but I’m spread too thin
I just can’t hold myself together within
When I’m left behind

(Behind)
I can’t deny
(The secret I hide in my mind)
I let myself fall behind

(Behind)
I can’t deny
(The secret I hide in my mind)
I let myself fall behind

I’ve lost my way
(I’d do anything to wash away these sins)
It’s hard to run when you’re caged in
I’ve lost my way
(Risking everything when it all begins)
The long road never seems to end

How can I feel when I’ve lost so much
I can’t believe there’s no one to trust
How can I run when I can’t even move
There’s nothing left for me to lose

I’m so (alone)
I’ve chased away everyone I’ve (known)
Sometimes I really wish I could take this (back)
And change the way that I would (act)
I’d do just that

I’m so (alone)
I’ve chased away everyone I’ve (known)
Sometimes I really wish I could take this (back)
And change the way that I would (act)
I’d do just that

I’ve lost my way
(I’d do anything to wash away these sins)
It’s hard to run when you’re caged in
I’ve lost my way
(Risking everything when it all begins)
The long road never seems to end

I’ve lost my way
(I’d do anything to wash away these sins)
It’s hard to run when you’re caged in
I’ve lost my way
(Risking everything when it all begins)
The long road never seems to end

    General CommentForbidden Theory is a 6-piece Nu-Metal underground band from Washington DC. There underground debut "Hidden Truth" dropped over the summer and this song featured on it. I follow a lot of underground artists and these guys were some of the new artists that caught my eye

    General CommentHoly shit this i can relate to this song a lot. It talks about someone who has nothing left and decides he wants to end his or her life and band puts themselves as a person for comfort and tells them theres more to find in life. It sorta reminds of me of one of my friends who was thinking the same thing.
