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've seen your eyes
Search desperate skies
For meaning 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 thought were so 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
