I welcome shades of gray openly
Anachronistic life unending
Unnecessary strain compounding
The failing cognition resounding

I hate what I become
when all I have is this
And the weight collapses me
as the numbness hits
I fail again to break the fall

I'm here all alone wondering how it all will end
Fighting in vain as into the darkness I descend
Waiting for light that I know I'll never see
Desperate for silence once again

Asphyxiating will incarnate
The hope of amnesty discarded
I hate what I have done to build the emptiness
Into walls I can't unmake and the prison fits
I fail again to break the fall

(2x)
I'm here all alone wondering how it all will end
Fighting in vain as into the darkness I descend
Waiting for light that I know I'll never see
Desperate for silence once again

Desperate for silence (I am) (2x)
Desperate for silence once again

    General CommentOMG i love this song. By far my favorite ADH song.

    as for the meaning, hating what you have become by isolating yourself. i think that because "I hate what I have done to build the emptiness
    Into walls I can't unmake and the prison fits"

    to me that sounds like building walls and being unable to break them down.
