Another lonesome night.
A room full of emptiness.
Darkness engulfing me,
I can't handle the pain.
Helpless my new name,
I have no family.
No one tells the truth,
I've got nothing left and nowhere to run.
It's suicide.
A complex task.
Self-decision pre-constructed doom,
Its not your time to go.
I don't belong,
So I will die.
Self sacrifice for I hate living,
I should die. (I should die!)
Now there's no return,
To my once sad smile.
Too many steps too far,
And now I've lost my way.
I'm just asking you to listen,
I haven't got a lot to say.
I just need a friend,
I'm so alone and so afraid.
Remember when you said you'd always hold my hand?
We'd be a family forever.
Now where did everyone go?
I've reached my breaking point I feel it's time to go,
Has God forgotten me?
What happend to God?
What happened to me?

    General CommentIt's pretty easy to see what this band is saying. They are straight forward about everything. It's definately about suicide. He's examining his life, where were all the "loved ones" when he was like this? Why hasn't anybody noticed or cared? But somewhere in the middle he's kind of confused about it, thinking:

    "Now there's no return,
    To my once sad smile.
    Too many steps too far,
    And now I've lost my way."

    Best Dogwood song ever (in my opinion).

    General CommentIt's not about suicide, but more about the things that lead one to suicide; it's about depression.
