Where is the light that I thought I was promised?
Where is the truth, and the hope and the way?
I’ve lost my footing, my spine, my eyes
Everything keeps slipping away
Where is the storybook ending
The love, the joy, the laughter?

If all there is just nothing at all
Is there anything that matters?
Is this all we get for our lives?

And after everything
Why is it still so lonely?
So blank, so dry, so numb
Are we brought up just to crack and bleed out?
Unravel, coming undone
Is this all we get?

Is this all we get for our lives?
Is this all we get?

Save me.

    General CommentI love this song, it's simple, but just reading it, you can feel Anorexia's hopelessness. (STORY SPOILER) She works so hard to find God (or reach the sky) using her own methods and fails, her own method gets her nowhere, just like most people's methods of living achieve nothing in the long run

    General CommentYeah, you ruined it...but more so than that she's not reaching for God.

    She says she's looking for ...'something'

    And us as people try to fill that something with everything else besides God. 'Looking for love in all the wrong places' And she's trying to find that something and please herself by building her tower...to where she finds takes her nowhere.

    She wasn't reaching for God...
