81 (who?)
What have I done?
I stand here holding a gun.
I am confused, bemused
And wanting to understand who I am...

I just gotta know -
What's going on inside my mind.
I just gotta know -
What is behind these eyes?

Who is this at my feet?
Where am I? No retreat!
Find myself incomplete,
Drenched in cold, cold sweat!

She is gone; all is lost...
One mistake; what great cost!
Who did this? They will pay!
I will avenge you!


I just gotta know -
What's going on inside my mind.
I just gotta know -
What is behind these eyes?

Who would take from me my deepest breath?
Take the life out of her flesh?
He will taste this pain,
These bitter tears!

Behind these shattered eyes,
I only fear he runs from himself...
Faces of time are shattered on the floor;
The smoke is clearing.

As I look in this broken mirror,
the divisions are clear
Could this be?
All this is born of me?
Ripped apart!


Nothing to gain,
Nothing to lose,
Nothing is left but
Empty remains...

What could have been,
Will never be -
It was always me!
What have I done?

Her crimson dress, scarlet canvas of your darkest fury...
You can't pretend that you're innocent any longer.
You know the truth on the edges of your mind; 
The actions that unite us cannot be undone.
Track 2 from my band's album Altered State

Wow! Well done!!! The lyrics alone captured my attention, then after watching the video... Very emotional song and video, very well done! If anybody needed the description you put of the video they didn't pay attention... Great job telling the story! You have a new fan in me!

:( I too have lost someone not understanding my thoughts. I wrote some songs about him, but they're all harder music.
