This song is performed by Assemblage 23 and appears on the album Contempt (1999).
So here I stand, completely alone
My skin absorbs the rain
Helpless to control pieces within the whole
I can feel it starting again

A sudden descent
I never meant to manifest itself
Caught unaware in frozen air
By visions sent in stealth

How far I've fallen
Dancing in the ruins of Purgatory
My time is borrowed
But still I waste away

I have seen your eyes search desperate skies
For meanings they can't find
Succumbed to fate's unsteady gait
And found it too unkind

Plunge through the depths
Of what you let control you for too long
Life's fickle hand dealt reprimands
You prayed for all along

How far you've fallen
Dancing in the ruins of Purgatory
Your time is borrowed
But still you waste away

Watch the world pass through broken glass
And wonder what went wrong
Monuments fall on shattered walls
We once believed were strong

Our false beliefs are merely thieves
That steal our precious time
And off they flee in symmetry
Never punished for their crimes

How far we've fallen
Dancing in the ruins of Purgatory
Our time is borrowed
But still we waste away
