I watched you steal away
A man's best years
With the drumming of his fingers
And the kicking of his heels

I watched you put away
Your sweetest sins
I watched tempters satisfy
With the sweetest taste of wasted time

Don't let me disappear
Don't let me fall apart
Don't lead me to the wayside
Just don't let me go
Don't let me fade away

I watched him travel down
A steady road
With no milestones
Just a gentle slope

Soft underfoot, no sudden turns
Warn of sliding down that safe and sound
But not too familiar road
This is all too familiar

Don't let me disappear
Don't let me fall apart
Don't lead me to the wayside
Just don't let me go
Don't let me fade away

Don't let me disappear
Don't lead me to the wayside
Anything or not a thing will do

I watched you steal away
A man's best years
With the drumming of his fingers
And the kicking of his heels

Without a twinkle in his eye
I watched him beg and plead
With moving lips and bended knees
Just to have you back

Don't let me disappear
Don't let me fall apart
Don't lead me to the wayside
Just don't let me go
Don't let me fade away

Don't let me disappear
Don't lead me to the wayside
Anything or not a thing will do

Be numb my heart
Oh, nothingness
Be numb my heart
Oh, nothingness

Don't let me disappear
Don't let me fall apart
Don't lead me to the wayside
Just don't let me go

Don't let me disappear
Don't let me fall apart
Don't lead me to the wayside
Just don't let me go
Don't let me fade away

Don't let me disappear
Don't lead me to the wayside
Anything or not a thing will do

    General CommentBrendan said this about the song:

    "The lyrics for this were really inspired by a book called "The Screwtape Letters" by C.S. Lewis. This song sort of follows the character falling into one of the most camouflaged of all vices; nothing."
