Jude Reed :
I stand alone in the darkness; happen to glance over my shoulder
My body is slumped and lifeless, as my limbs grow colder
Do you ever sit and wonder what life could have been?
Am I trapped in a nightmare, or some pre-proposed dream?
Was I really a terrible person, how far did I fall;
To want to leave so badly, and escape from it all?
Who was Jude really, was he an imagined, false face?
The man inside him died, leaving a coward in his place
Why am I caught in limbo? And how hard can it be;
To escape from fate’s grasp when it has control of me.
