Each day I dig my own grave
in hopes my sanity will be saved
after everyone and everything has let me down
I sink into the sorrow that holds me a slave

In a crowded room screaming, "Just help me, please!"
they turn a deaf ear as I fall to my knees

chorus:
these are years of anger and frustration
where I become a victim of my own vindication
with lack of trust, i lock my brain away from the outside
lying low in my thoughts-that is where I hide
while they forget what they have done throughout these torrid years
I count their numbered days and I will not forget my tears

everyday i bite my tongue
so my wasted words won't hurt no one
after everything I've loved has been taken from me
the lonliness pulls me into oblivion

In a crowded room screaming, "Just help me, please!"
they turn a deaf ear as I fall to my knees

chorus

all I have left are memories of my once-happy past
I try hard to hold onto them but they keep fading fast
and these scars you've given me they will forever last

chorus

    General CommentThe devotchkas were so much better. The 99's songs are too "emo" and what not. I dont like the singer, the old singer was great.
