I feel so alone,
like a turtle in a shell;
everyone around me
thinks everything's swell.

They've never seen me
paralized with fear,
crying out and reaching,
but nobody's there.

I did all I could;
I really did try.
I feel so alone;
I just want to die.

No one understands
the pain I feel
they all think I'm faking,
but the pain is all too real.

I'm holding the gun
as you walk through the door--
too little, too late,
as my body hits the floor.

So many chances,
so many things you could have said,
that means nothing as I lie here
with a hole in my head.
