- What Matters
Empty, this soul is breaking
No moonbeam soft can reach to fill my void.
And I lay, lowly and icy
Bare and wrapped in world's sorrow unkind.
Something stirs deep within this heart of stone
When I touch my chest, my skin is searing hot
I scream for pain but feel nothing
Am I dead, or have I finally forgot
Just how to feel?
Nothing anymore seems completely real.
Everything is so half-hearted or complacent or so cold within me.
I can barely muster up affection for whosoever loves me.
I try so hard and feel myself slip
The feeling that I knew I had, right on through my fingertips
No life to call my own, no sound
This echo of a sigh rebounds
And comes back to lay faithful at my feet
Like the dog I cannot bear to beat.
