Falling through the oceans of life
I sense the sorrow
I picture the pain from the stream of life that I'm in
Feel the fire burning through the sphere tonight
What is this thing that I see?
Someone wake me up from this nightmare!

If I only could get through the night, it would be a revelation
The understanding of nothing seems so far away

Why am I here, down on this lonely road?
I can feel there's no one here
I'm slowly fading into nothingness
Why am I here, down on this lonely road?
I try to speak, but can't find the words to say

It was only a dream - His body senses relief
He washes off the night from his face,
followed by a look in the mirror
Something doesn't feel right here
Who is this man I see?
Somehow he can't recognize himself

If I only could get through the night, it would be a revelation
The understanding of nothing seems so far away

Why am I here, down on this lonely road?
I can feel there's no one here
I'm slowly fading into nothingness
Why am I here, down on this lonely road?
I try to speak, but can't find the words to say
(The words to say, oh no)

Like a child, he's scared by the absence of light
Abducted by himself
Crippled by the mind
The will must contrive the mind

Why am I here, down on this lonely road?
I carry on
Why am I here, down on this lonely road?
Down on this lonely road
I can feel there's no one here
I'm slowly fading into nothingness
Into nothingness I fade
Stop locking me in! Why can't I get out of here?
I've been lost in the long forever, lurking alone again
