Creator are you there
I think my time has come
May I return to my home in the clouds

I forget how to sleep
I forget how to dream
This heart is all I know
This skin is all I know
This life is all I know
This heart is all I know
This skin is all I know

You left me on a page
Without a face or name
You left me on a stage
Tell me what's left to learn
Tell me what I deserve

I set myself on fire
I wore the mask you made
Time stood still
And I became the dream
