Time flows
Nobody knows
The years go by
Where we go... alone... from here

Night falls
Strange colored walls
My eyes deceive
What is wrong... with me?

Deep in the night you think everything's right
Tell it to yourself
Say it's just a nightmare

Something is telling you
Nothing can change where you are

Why should it matter
Your dreams of a child
Innocence is gone
Only fear to play with

Faces are changing
But nothing is changing the pain
Too late

Two steps I take getting closer
And closer

And one more breath I take
Sends me further back

Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah

Over and over it calls to your soul
Say it isn't so
Emptiness surrounds you

No one can help if the angels refuse to come near
Who's there?

Cold faded photos
They lay by your side
Something in my room
Nevermind the reason

Visions are lying and reasons just live to survive
This time

The cold (The cold)
The light (The light)
The fear (The fear)

It's not (It's not)
The eyes (The eyes)
You feel (You feel)
That's chilling you


  • The tune of this song is very similar to the Music Box Puzzle from Silent Hill 2.
  • The song might be a reference to Cheryl's illusion about Harry Mason being alive, but slowly accepting the truth about his death.
