There's a wall that stands between us
Something neither one can see
Protection from the world outside
And most of all from me.
Years of torture and deceit
Have made your fortress strong
Maybe all are out to harm you
Just as you are never wrong.

You doubted my intentions
Left me grappling with fear
My words were not sincere enough
For your hardened heart to hear.
Thousand miles may lay between us
May as well be down the hall
You close out all around you
So no one's near at all.

Set me free
I've no faith in anything I see
Look at what you've done with your dishonesty
Leave me be
I don't need your callous sympathy
For I'm not as weak as I appear to be.

Maybe things were different
Though nothing's changed at all
Now my strength is failing
Can't catch you when you fall
You have no need of me
And set out on your own
When the world comes down around you
You'll find yourself alone.

Years will come in silence
Only memories will remain
Peace will not come easy
A token of distain
So let your hope be silent
Though there's nothing there at all
Sleep will not come easy
As the rain begins to fall.
