There are no words Nothing can ever be said To make sense of the exit that you made Or this sadness forced on our lap Left us struck with these haunting questions Where are all the beautiful answers Where is the button to push that takes it all back I should have been there Crossed burning bridges to meet you Where was I when you ran out of walls to punch And I know that you wouldn't want us to blame ourselves Or anything but the world And that your actions well they were never tender But still nothing prevails like the emptiness Of a world forever without you I can still see the way that your teeth showed When you smiled Hear the sound of your guitar I think of the things that should have given You the strength to go on The horror of our last words Still ringing in my ears Anything we would've done Anything to keep you around Sometimes you just can't keep The madness at bay alone We have all been there before No one makes it here alone

    General Commentone of the saddest songs ever. the death of a friend is one of the hardest things to deal with, and when the death is from ther own hands... well what could be said about suicide that hasnt been said in this song. BANE is the best.
