As the walls are closing in
And the colors fade to black
And my eyes are falling fast and deep into me
And I follow the tracks that lead me down
And I never follow what's right
And they wonder sometimes when they see all the
Sadness and pain that truth brings to light

'Cause I can't see no reason
What is blind cannot see
'Cause I want what is pleasing
All I take should be free
What I rob from the innocent ones
What I'd steal from the womb

If I cried me a river of all my confessions
Would I drown in my shallow regret

As the walls are closing in
And the colors fade to black
And my eyes are falling fast and deep into the sea
(Above line written as "and the night is falling" in album jacket)
And in darkness all that I can see
The frightened and the weak
Are forced to cling to mistakes they know nothing of
At mercy are the meak

'Cause I can't see no reason
What is blind cannot see
'Cause I want what is pleasing
All I take should be free
What I rob from the innocent ones
What I'd steal from the womb

If I cried me a river of all my confessions
Would I drown in my shallow regret
If I cried me a river of all my confessions
Would I drown in my shallow regret
If I cried me a river of all my confessions
Would I drown in my shallow regret
If I cried me a river of all my confessions
Would I drown in my shallow regret
