Fade Away

Sometimes I wish I could just go...
I walk down a lonely path
fog and shadow hide the way;
in this long journey through life
darkness leads me astray.

My mind is so cold and barren,
so confused to the point that in my head
I finally conclude that nothing will be truly answered
and the sordid thought lurks that I'd be better off dead.

Sometimes I wonder what the true purpose of life is,
if our soul and mind will ever make a change
to our afterlife; will I ever be satisfied
or must I always feel so strange?

I don't think that I can ever achieve true happiness
never transforming my heart of stone.
I guess I'll just continue on my way through the dark
and stumble on and on all alone...

So many questions and yet no answers;
maybe it would be better for me to just fade away
just forget all troubles, sins, and questions in the mind
and be forgotten myself night by night, day by day.

Here I am once again ready to disappear into the mist
and go away; to forget everything before it's too late
after that's done I'll be happier than I was before
and then what lies up ahead is all up to fate.

Oh, darkness and shadow consume me!
Conceal all of my pain and doubt; let all questions be long gone.
Cease the mental torture raging within me
and disperse the hatred in me that has been drawn.

Evil angel take me away from this life,
forgive my sins and let me be happy in the way
that I can go to heaven and have everything explained
otherwise just leave me alone and let me fade away...

...because I walked down a lonely path
fog and shadow hide the way;
in this long journey through life
darkness leads me astray...

but I seem happier this way...
