I am alone among a sea of people
A shadow on the wall, silently screaming
Amongst the phantoms, the spectres
I am alive
Amongst the living,
I am a phantom, a spectre
The desire to be normal
Sets me apart
While time goes on
I remain ageless
Trapped forever
In a state of supreme
As the infinite stream passes before me
I watch with a dwindling fire
All eternity in a second
And the seconds tick by
All the world at my fingertips
And my fingertips are burned
The universe could perish
And i would remain
I could take my life
But the universe would remain
The universe in an eternity
Gone in a second
