    How could silence, be louder than my scream
    How could shadows, be darker than my dream
    How could I feel, the guilt and the shame
    Sadness and sorrow, but no one to blame
    How could I live, with no fate or name
    How could my life, be an endless game
    How could I hate, what I've became
    Sadness and sorrow, It's all the same
    How could I cry, a thousand day
    How could my life, throw me away
    How could I forget, How could I deny
    Sadness and sorrow, are not just a lie
