I wish I could keep holding on, for just a little while.
I wish I had the energy to force another smile.
I wish I had it within me, to tell you how I feel.
Everything seems so far away, no concept of what's real.

If something bad happens now, I just don't think I'd care.
I'm almost apathetic; my eyes can't meet your stare.
Anything with colour, just looks to my eyes black.
I've never felt so dead inside, I want the old me back.

Though there's nothing left to want anymore, crushed are all my dreams.
I'm losing touch; I'm fading away, and it's as easy as it seems.
Your words are broken sounds to me, I'm not sure I even hear them.
Even if they were insults, I've no power left to fear them.

I've nothing left to give anymore, my emotions are sucked dry.
It'd be asking far too much of me, for me even to cry.
I'm almost numb; I'm all strung out, upon the bed I'm laid.
And the only thing I can feel, is the life inside me fade.

------- Author's Notes -------

This is the feeling of truly giving up.
