Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Still waiting where you left me
Still imprisoned by a lie
Still clinging on to desperate hope
While all around me dies

Still praying for an answer
Still in bondage to delusion
Still adding up the numbers
Expecting a different conclusion

Still raw and still bleeding
Pleading for the pain to end
Its grip now overwhelming
My one remaining friend

Still terrified of the future
Still crippled by the past
Still writhing in discomfort
In this role in which Iím cast

Still playing back the memories
As the pictures slowly fade
Still foolishly waiting for you to keep
The promises you made

Still screaming in the silence
Still frozen in the shadows

Still confused
Still bewildered
Still hurting
Still broken

But still alive.
