I'm a shell of who I used to be.
Just a distorted memory.
In the mirror, yes, I see me,
but you see the me I pretend to be.

Every love has been full of deceit
Like a desert made from the sea.
In my chest my heart does beat
but my past I dare not repeat.

Into my mind I retreat.
On the outside, I can't take the heat
Living out there is an unbearable feat.
Just an opponent I can not defeat.
