please can you help me - throw me a lifeline
in a distant sea of blackness i see a flame
my conscience beside me, my vacant emotions
inside my hollow thoughts i still walk alone
please can you guide me - away from the future
to shun my worries and turn my nights into days
and i see an angel landing beside me
with all this pain i feel god take me away
take me away

yeah i know
that i'm no one, nothing, lost inside my head
yeah i'm here
for the pain, abuse, and torture that i will endear
yeah i'm numb
from the visions etched inside my skull through the years
and the tears

who can i turn to, cause i'm not myself now
it used to be so simple and easy to say
i need you to guide me, give me the answers
if the fire that burns inside you could light me the way
i'm standing in silence, and lost in confusion
and wishing someone else was feeling the same
i stand by the ocean, imagine the future
as the solid ground i stand on washes away
wash me away

yeah i know
that i'm no one, nothing, lost inside my head
yeah i'm here
for the pain, abuse, and torture that i will endear
yeah i know
that through all my grief i slowly lost control
yeah i see
that the anger i once had is encircling me
and i'm still numb
from the fear inside still left to overcome
and i've had enough

    General CommentWow, this song almost brings tears to my eyes.

    To me, it's about feeling alone, confused. You once lived on solid ground and knew where you wanted to go in life then you hit a bump in the road and feel like you're life is almost at an end but now is asking a friend for help, you see them as guidance and the protector.
