I was worn thin, now I'm worn out
Never knowing what life's like not worrying about
The little thing people take for granted
It's left me jaded and empty handed

Society cast the first stone
Crucified and all alone
My conscience kept silent
and my havoc reigned
attitude defiant
no consequence can phase

If so many judgmental people
had some faith in me
I could've been more than what the
what the eye could see

In my eyes
I had the worst of times
a constant thought resonates in my head
I am a waste of life and I am better off dead

I'm a perfect example of the worst human being
and my heart gets less fragile with the peril I see
I tried my hardest to make it in this town
I have failed most and I have let them down

A kid shouldn't have demons to fight
since the day of his birth
looked down upon so young
and deemed the scum of the earth

I'm now an empty man
who had a fucked up start
I was a kid with a sincere heart
until this world tore it apart

I learned my lessons the hard way
Hoped for mercy that never came
I hate this fucking world
and it hates me just the same

I'm a waste of life and I show it
I'm better off dead and I know it

Take look around see the broken spirits roam the streets
They're the living proof of the ones who let failure succeed
I fee this is me, I can no longer compete
There's just no fight left in me
I've felt this for years and I feel it now more than ever
I've welled up these tears at the thought of the ties I'll sever
I've hoped for a brighter day but I believe hope dies today

I've let every aspect of life defeat me
I've withstood hardships that would leave another man empty
So I find solace in death, a friend I know all too well
Eagerly awaiting my last breath,'Cause I'm no stranger to hell

Carry me away to my early grave
There's no heartbeat here
There's no soul to save

no heartbeat. no soul.
I've lost all control.
