I came into this world an unmarked page
But I've stained the paper with lines that I cannot erase
Discarded my identity
A fragment of what I used to be

An iron mind in paper walls
Is not a stable foundation in this ongoing storm
And now these hands of stone have eroded (Eroded)
Collapsed again

I see a stranger's face staring in the mirror
Who I was was somewhere lost along the way (Lost along the way)
Caught in an empty space, I never thought I'd be here
Each day I feel it take a part of me (Take a part of me)

No retribution, no compromise
Selfishly self-immolating inside
Burn, burn me alive, I've seen the other side
Burn me, set me alight

I see a stranger's face staring in the mirror
Who I was was somewhere lost along the way (Lost along the way)
Caught in an empty space, I never thought I'd be here
Each day I feel it take a part of me (Take a part of me)

Takes a part of me

I can't deny this feeling, I can't ignore the pain
Of knowing I am human and we all feel the fucking same
We're all born to feel this way

And so I ask myself
Is the measure of a man, his character, his worth
Contained by what his heart holds or contained within his works?
My motivations have never strayed
But somewhere I think they were buried

Along the way

I see a stranger's face staring in the mirror
Who I was was somewhere lost along the way (Lost along the way)
Caught in an empty space, I never thought I'd be here
Each day I feel it take a part of me (Take a part of me)

I've seen the other side
