// Lyrics:

I’ll walk out on whatever is left, peel off all the name tags and vanish in thin air. Shivers run over withered skin. I’ll leave town tonight and I’ll never look back. One last chance for satisfaction in my lifetime. One last chance to live adventure with a beating heart. It’s now or never. I stare into the bright light ahead. My rusty knees won’t bend easily, but I’m determined to take every step of the way by myself, until my time is up. I feel I’ve lost more friends than I ever made, forgot the songs I loved and sang the ones I hate. And if I die today a couple years from now no one will even know that I was alive. There’s nothing that I leave behind. I stare into the bright light ahead. Behind it hides nothingness, but I won’t blink, I won’t look away. By myself until my time is up.
