Lyrics

RESTING IN PIECES

HERE I AM, CAN YOU SEE ME?
SENDING OUT MY HEART TO THE ATMOSPHERE.
HERE I AM, CAN YOU FEEL ME?
I'M CALLING OUT FOR ALL TO HEAR.

IN THIS EXISTANCE, I REST IN PIECES.
ON THE JAGGED EDGE OF SANITY.
PRAYING A SOUL WILL RESCUE ME,
FROM THIS PRISON I CALL HOME.
IN THIS DARKNESS SEEKING LIGHT,
WALKING LOST IN AN ENDLESS NIGHT.
AND SO I WAIT, TO SEE MY FATE.
'TIL THEN I'M RESTING,
I'M RESTING IN PIECES.

I SIT IN THIS DEAFENING SILENCE,
CRYING OUT FOR SOMEONE, ANYONE TO COME.
FEELING AFRAID, AFRAID IN THIS SOLITUDE,
ALWAYS ALONE, FROZEN AND NUMB.

IN THIS EXISTANCE, I REST IN PIECES.
ON THE JAGGED EDGE OF SANITY.
PRAYING A SOUL WILL RESCUE ME,
FROM THIS PRISON I CALL HOME.
IN THIS DARKNESS SEEKING LIGHT,
WALKING LOST IN AN ENDLESS NIGHT.
AND SO I WAIT, TO SEE MY FATE.
UNTIL THEN I'M RESTING,
I'M RESTING IN PIECES.

IF YOU SEE ME, DON'T JUST WALK ON BY,
MY HEART IS HEAVY WITH THE SCARS I HIDE.
IF YOU SEE THE SIGNS, DON'T IGNORE THEM.
'CAUSE YOU MIGHT JUST SAVE MY LIFE.


IN THIS EXISTANCE, I REST IN PIECES.
ON THE JAGGED EDGE OF SANITY.
PRAYING A SOUL WILL RESCUE ME,
FROM THIS PRISON I CALL HOME.
IN THIS DARKNESS SEEKING LIGHT,
WALKING LOST IN AN ENDLESS NIGHT.
IN THIS EXISTANCE, I REST IN PIECES.
THIS LIFE IS MY REALITY,
NEED A HERO TO RESCUE ME,
FROM THIS PRISON, I CALL HOME.
IN THIS DARKNESS SEEKING LIGHT,
WALKING LOST IN AN ENDLESS NIGHT.
AND SO I WAIT, TO SEE MY FATE.
UNTIL THEN I'M RESTING,
I'M RESTING IN PIECES.
I REST IN PIECES.
