In fear every day, every evening, he calls her aloud from above
He carefully watched for a reason, painstaking devotion and love
Surrendered to self preservation from others who care for themselves
A blindness that touches perfection but hurts just like anything else

Isolation, isolation, isolation

Mother, I tried, please believe me. I'm doing the best that I can
I'm ashamed of the things I've been put through, I'm ashamed of the person I am

Isolation, isolation, isolation

But if you could just see the beauty, these things I could never describe
These pleasures a wayward distraction; this is my one lucky prize

Isolation, isolation, isolation
Isolation, isolation
