There is safety in this solitude


I live it day to day


There is safety in this solitude


What else is left to say


There is safety in this solitude


From myself I can not hide


There is safety in this solitude


Its myself I can't abide


There is safety in this solitude


To myself I can not lie


There is safety in this solitude


At times I want to die


There is safety in this solitude


I am but only one


There is safety in this solitude


There in no other one


There is safety in this solitude


That I can't deny


There is safety in this solitude


From here I want to fly


There is safety in this solitude


I'd rather be alone


There is safety in this solitude


From myself I can not roam


There is safety in this solitude


Its better than a living hell


There is safety in this solitude


I do not want to dwell


There is safety in this solitude


I'm safer on my own


There is safety in this solitude


My "friends" to me have shown


There is safety in this solitude


I die a little each day


There is safety in this solitude


There is nothing left to say.
