Darkness swallows me
Along with whom I used to be
Little hands cover my ears
But they cannot stop their own tears
But when the walls come crumbling down
Those little hands hit the ground
Lost in chaos
Destroyed by words
I did not recognize those little hands anymore
My ears filled with the truth
Lies I once new broken
All alone without a real home
I cannot hold these walls
So I let go
Watching everything drop
Taking no time to stop
I lost myself
A self I once adored
Shadows I cannot hide behind anymore
The little hands covered my ears
To hide me from the pain
But hiding me drove those little hands insane
