Call Me Ishmael (Lyrics)

Call me faceless, November suppresses my vitality 
I grow grim, at comfort in the challenger deep 
I have withdrawn from this life as it hangs over me. 
I am tangled in this notion of being “all right.” 

This ghost haunts me. I see it in the light and behind my eyes. 
I hope to find closure on the voyage setting sail. 
To put an end to this once and for all. 

To my back an ocean miles between 
(who I am and what I know) I’m fading away 
I’m trapped in a maze of things I could have done. 
Why can’t I see the distance is killing me. 

I want my life back, my happiness restored 
I wish I recognized the pain I felt before. 
It is too late. I can’t go back and undo the mistakes 

The connection I have to the person that I use to be 
Obsession is the only structure to the void I feel. 

From hell’s heart I will fight. For hate’s sake I will spit my last breath 
"Thus, I give up the spear!" 
Let go why can’t I let it go 
All I see is white regardless of the shipwreck around me. 

I want my life back, my happiness restored 
I wish I recognized the pain I felt before. 
It is too late. I can’t go back and undo the mistakes 

I can’t let this drown me. Find the strength to let the rope go. 
Happiness isn’t written on any map. True places never are.
