Their hostile sneers remind you of home,
You don't belong anywhere; you simply exist,
And you wonder how the happiness ran away.

He lets out his emotions with a blade,
He drifts here and there, he can't stop,
He just floats like a dreamer in this fairy tale.

Slumped in a bathtub with deep incisions,
I drop the empty vodka bottle to the floor,
It would appear that my heart has stopped.
