Can you hear my SOS

Verse

Solitude is a ghost town

Of haunted nights and dreams.

Of endless persecution

From my conscience judging me.

Ranting like a madman

Unbridled in his rage.

I’m a captive audience.

Locked in my own cage.

Pre Chorus

Throw me a rope I’m drowning.

Can you hear my SOS?

Can you give me my absolution?

If I kneel down and confess?

Throw me a rope I’m drowning.

Can you hear my SOS?

Verse

Solitude is a ghost town

Of all that could have been.

Of letters filled with love

That I wrote but never sent.

Brooding like a poet

Struggling with his soul.

I lie here in my coffin

While dirt fills up the hole.

Chorus

Throw me a rope I’m drowning.

Can you hear my SOS?

Can you give me my absolution?

If I kneel down and confess?

Throw me a rope I’m drowning.

Can you hear my SOS?

Verse

Solitude is a ghost town

Where tortured souls reside.

In their constant introspection

To find purpose in their lives.

Cowering like a dog

Beaten too many times.

I want to end it all

But I’m too afraid to die.

Chorus

Throw me a rope I’m drowning.

Can you hear my SOS?

Can you give me my absolution?

If Throw me a rope I’m drowning.

Can you hear my SOS?

I kneel down and confess?

Bridge

I grip the bars and I shake them.

They rattle but barely budge.

It’s my eternal damnation?

That it’s my own soul I judge.
