Lyrics and Music 2001

(Originally released as a limited edition 7" single by Maniacal Records in 2002)


These empty years, in sadness repose
What once were joys now have become sorrows

I drank them all away

Once, I held hopes, loves, and dreams…now they’ve sunken into the sea
And I’ve no one left to save me from drowning eternally

I drank them all away
I drank myself away
