about

Loosely based on the story of Orpheus, this song is really more about feeling alone, forgotten and truly desperate. It's about standing on the outside, looking in, and the knowledge that we will always be alone.

lyrics

Don’t look back
You lose yourself
And all that matters most
Don’t look out
from the mirror you’re reflected in
There’s no one there

Life drags on
and pulls you under
brutalizes you and breaks you
Life is pain
And it makes you brutal in return
but there’s no one left to save

Chorus:
]Have you seen me?
An existential question
with no answer
Here I am
Ravenous
for a life beyond my reach

Here I stand
hollowed out
all that’s left is desperation
Here I am
a black desolation
choking on my rage


Chorus

Bridge:
Don’t look back
Life is pain
Here I am
Ravenous
for a lie
I cannot have

Chorus
