As consciousness fades
Will I remember the shame?
Or will it fade
Into the grave that is my name?
 
I fall to sleep
Drunk on the pleasure I’m sold
Dream of hopeless wishes
Never to come true
Never to be told
 
And when I lose the shame
Will I retain my name?
 
When the scars remind
Of all the times
Where I lost the line
Where I took my time
Will I still see the light?
 
As consciousness fades
Will I remember the shame?
Or will it fade
Into the grave that is my name?
 
Prodigal son
Drained of all your true worth
Among the swine realize
You lost your purpose
And accepted the curse
 
Take a breath
Reflect
Return to where it began
And learn from the pain
Never again shall you feel the same
 
As consciousness fades
I will remember the shame
Won’t let it fade
Into the grave that is my name
