We live our lives
For others, we give it all

We confuse happiness
With hate and endless suffering

As we're dying
Every passing minute becomes one less

Sitting in the darkness
Where we will be alone

Can't make it up now
So we delve in our anger

Our love
Begins to slowly deteriorate

As the shining light
Fades in the horizon

Walking with the faceless
As the ghosts whisper my name
Being another faithless
As we are lost in the shame
Stuck in these chains
I feel me going insane
But our life goes on!
My life goes on!
Walking with the faceless
As the ghosts whisper my name
Being another faithless
As we are lost in the shame

Look back at yesterday
When I used to look at the stars and feel like I belonged

I am my own prison
As I travel without any meaning

After yesterday
I chose to travel within my silence

But I will give you the chance to find me
In the shadows that once was my soul

I walk on
As I am strung on the strings of my symphony

I can't find the words
That can describe my failures

But in the end
I will be the one that remains

Walking with the faceless
As the ghosts whisper my name
Being another faithless
As we are lost in the shame
Stuck in these chains
I feel me going insane
But our life goes on!
My life goes on!
Walking with the faceless
As the ghosts whisper my name
Being another faithless
As we are lost in the shame

Everytime I try
It's just never enough
I try to please
But I am always let down

It's not enough for you
You will never be satisfied
And so I'll wait here
Until you move on

Walking with the faceless
As the ghosts whisper my name
Being another faithless
As we are lost in the shame
I'll break from these chains
I'm no longer going insane
But our life goes on!
My life goes on!
Walking with the faceless
As the ghosts whisper my name
Being another faithless
As we are lost in the shame

My life goes on!
Seeking for my Christ
I carry on, my cross
As my life goes on!

Wanted to make a song that doesn't focus on rhymes. There are some rhymes, mainly in the chorus, but otherwise it is about what YOU can't currently here, which is making the verses match in time and pitch. This may be the first I try to make into a real song.

I love your songs/poetry because you can just tell they're REAL, you can see the pain and frustration behind the words and it definitely shows that they mean something. :nod:

Out of curiosity, have you ever tried writing screamo or metal songs? Cause they would be EPIC. :la:

TheWandererNears Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
I actually write them with them being metal and screamo in mind. I generally don't tell people that, but that's the kinda music my heart lies with <3 Mmmm.. love me some metal bands.

xXWintersDescent Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2011
Yeah, I could definitely tell you were the metal type. :nod: But more of the "refined" sort, like Red or Evanescence or August Burns Red. What are your favorite bands?

Oh, wow - you weren't kidding when you said you were a huge fan of metal. The only ones I even recognize are Slipknot, Blessthefall, and Demonhunter... uber heavy stuff.

Hmm...what's your take on mellow stuff? Ska, maybe? (Well, ska's not exactly mellow but you know what I mean)

Never heard of Ska until I looked it up just now. It's alright, not bad. I do like other mellow stuff, usually from Christian bands. I kinda use the feeling you get from metal to help me deal with issues though.

The times where it said faceless made me think of Red's song :I

I think I heard that song before. Red is a good band, don't listen to them often though. So I shall take that as a compliment :)
