Lyrics

Dear Lover,

Dear Lover,
I’m writing these letters
I’m writing letters from war
It’s like my mind is taking in water
Still days away from shore

Dear Lover,
Do you think my father will be proud of what I’ve done
Will my mother recognize the man I’ve become
Can I disguise what lies behind

Behind these eyes the gates of hell
Inside my mind my prison cell
I’ve lost control
Forfeit it all
I’ve surrendered to the darkest part of myself

Dear Sister,
Oh, how I’ve missed you
I’ve been alone here for days
I can’t hear over the voices in my head
I think they’re here to stay

Dear Darkness,
Can you feel me now
Did you do this to me
Or did I do this to myself
A dying son
Remembered for nothing
Loved by no one

Behind these eyes the gates of hell
Inside my mind my prison cell
I’ve lost all hope
I’ve sold my soul
I’ve surrendered to the darkest part of myself
