There's No One There
I'm telling you how I feel
People aren't real
I'm better off gone, for everyone's sake
You can't even listen to me
This heartache, this pain, don't you see?
It's YOUR world that matters
My emotions everywhere, scattered
Trying to align my views
My life, everyone screws
Have I made the right choice?
You don't hear my voice
It's like talking to myself
I'm just another book on the shelf
A hole I'll crawl into
No one to sing to, no one to cry to
And all you'll have is YOU
This is what you wanted right?
Well here you are, it's all yours tonight
Be happy, be free
Don't forget, all alone I'll be
Enjoy your world, enjoy it all
Forget it, don't even bother to call
I won't pick up, I won't be there
I'll be in my own place, here
Alone and crying, hopefully dying
I could battle the fight, but what's the point of trying?
I'm done, done with all of it
Your love, your care, seems like a hit
A hit to the face
I know, I'm such a disgrace
Tell me something I don't know
I wish this would just go
Vanish, disappear, I'm wasting my breath
Remember Manny? There's no one there...
