    running on empty
    siphoned soul can't hold
    the rain /

    chasing peace around
    to get a piece of
    silence /

    no chaos

    no confusion

    solitude is not
    returning my calls

    chaos has been leaving messages
    of mess ages

    to weak to delete
    recorded speech so
    I listen to
    the confusion...

    the rain is falling
    the rain is falling
    like iron anvil's
    on mental mantles

    crashing
    choking and putting out the fires

    ...

    now warmth shuns me
    chaos is cold

    and I chase peace to get a piece
    of...

    mental silence.
