Forsaken
David Draidman Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I’m over it.
You see I’m falling in a vast abyss
Clouded by memories of the past
At last I see

I hear it fading
I can’t speak it
Or else you will dig my grave
You feel them finding
Always whining
Take my hand
Now be alive

You see I cannot be forsaken
Because I’m not the only one
We walk amongst you
Feeding, raping
Must we hide from everyone

I’m over it
Why can’t we be together?
Endlessly
Sleeping so long
Taking off the masks
At last I see

My fear is fading
I can’t speak it
Or else you will dig my grave
You fear them finding
Always whining
Take my hand
Now be alive

You see I cannot be forsaken
Because I’m not the only one
We walk amongst you
Feeding, raping
Must we hide from everyone

You see I cannot be forsaken
Because I’m not the only one
We walk amongst you
Feeding, raping
Must we hide from everyone
