Silent Drowning in Insanity

View from the broken window
Look in on their damaged lives
Spectating, observe their aching
Draft the logic of heartbreaking

Silent depression clouding their vision
Only knowing a naive world
So immune to internal, external hate
I'm chained outside, I am too late

They're drowning, drowning
Falling down
I sit by
Realize
I'm unable to make a sound

Tears rolling from inability
To wipe those bloodstained scars from their arms
I've lost myself in helpless crime
Lost in their pain, for I've buried mine

Fantasized hope eats away their perception
I know, for I'm free of my own
They're lost in reality, longing innocence
That they traded for false independence

Cycle of death
No solitary breath

They're drowning, drowning
Falling down
I sit by
Realize
I'm unable to make a sound

I once drowned, but then I burned
Now all I know are the scars
Love for life never returned
But I must save them from what we are
Insanity
Insanity
It becomes them
As it became me
I survived, but I'm not free

We're drowning, drowning
Falling down
And I'm still here
It's clear
No one will make a sound
