When the Rock Breaks

I've given up on living forever. I can't stand up to the struggle.
Everything I've dreamed up is a memory.
There's nothing left for me here.
I remember when I cried
And you came to comfort me.
You wouldn't be content to let me lie,
But you didn't understand me.
Why do I give up on living this life?
Why do I give up tonight?

When the rock breaks,
And the earth shakes,
When everything I've built just fades away.
When all that I am
And all that I've done
Just become a memory that's almost gone.
I can't stand it,
I can't fight it.
I am nothing and nothing is me.
When the rock breaks,
And the earth shakes,
When everything I've built just fades away.

When I'm gone,
I don't want you to cry for me
With all that I've done to hurt you in mind and body,
And you accepted it all so easily.
You can cry for you,
And you can hate me too,
But I can't stand the pain I've inflicted on you.
Don't forgive me for anything.
Why do I hurt everyone I love?
Why do I give up on love?

When the rock breaks,
And the earth shakes,
When everything I've built just fades away.
When all that I am
And all that I've done
Just become a memory that's almost gone.
I can't stand it,
I can't fight it.
I am nothing and nothing is me.
When the rock breaks,
And the earth shakes,
When everything I've built just fades away.

That's when you'll understand me,
That's when you'll understand me.

When you look at me
With those beautiful eyes,
All I can see
Is my pain deep inside.
I hurt you so much,
But I was the one scarred.
You were my love.
You are my life.
Why do I give up on living this life?
Why do I give up tonight?

When the rock breaks,
And the earth shakes,
When everything I've built just fades away.
When all that I am
And all that I've done
Just become a memory that's almost gone.
I can't stand it,
I can't fight it.
I am nothing and nothing is me.
When the rock breaks,
And the earth shakes,
When everything I've built just fades away.

That's when you'll understand me,
That's when you'll understand me.

When the rock breaks,
And the earth shakes,
When everything I've built just fades away.
When all that I am
And all that I've done
Just become a memory that's almost gone.
I can't stand it,
I can't fight it.
I am nothing and nothing is me.

Why do you love me?
How can you stand me?
Why do you back me
Even though I've hurt you so much?
Why does everyone expect that
The rock upon which they stand
Will always support them
And never snap?

[Solo - (Hey, it's a rock song!)]

When the rock breaks,
When the ground breaks,
When everything I've built
Just fades away...

When the rock breaks,
And the earth shakes,
When everything I've built just fades away.
When all that I am
And all that I've done
Just become a memory that's almost gone.
I can't stand it,
I can't fight it.
I am nothing and nothing is me.
When the rock breaks,
And the earth shakes,
When everything I've built just fades away.

That's when you'll understand me,
That's when you'll understand me.
When it all fades...
