Running On Empty – GOOT

Nothing but silence now
Where my heart used to be
An emptiness in me
Attempting to grasp the past
Memories pale and stained
Longing grows
A void remains

Running on empty
Haves that aren’t me
Wants that cannot be
Running on empty
Low mental inventory
Miserable and lonely

Change sneaks up on you
Promises of yesterday
The desolation of today
Nothing is made to last
All attempts to sustain
Fuel the ever growing pain
