Scene 1- Stealing Energy

(In a dark room. Marc is sitting alone.)

Marc: I fell down as my words called out

With an echoed voice, there was too much sound

Ringing in my ears wondering why I'm here

Singing through the noise, leaving only fear

My lungs cry out, and my voice dies out

And I'm shaking fast, there was too much sound

My veins pump blood, as I choke on mud

Let go of me, I can not breathe

This is you doing this to yourself

These are your eyes revealing no one else

I'm lightly fading, this pain is staying

My minds betraying, I can not feel

This isn't letting up to realize

These are your eyes, stealing energy

I'm lightly praying, my soul's decaying

Torn and fraying, for fear is real

My wounds can't be seen, they're created in my dreams

Appear to me, screaming, let it be

This pain I cannot shake, but it is shaking me

My limbs are freezing cold, my head is in a hole

My brain is on parole, my heart is pounding fast

This pain you cannot know, this pain can't possibly

Last in my soul

This is you doing this to yourself

These are your eyes revealing no one else

I'm lightly fading, this pain is staying

My minds betraying, I can not feel

This isn't letting up to realize

These are your eyes, stealing energy

I'm lightly praying, my soul's decaying

Torn and fraying, for fear is real

Scene 2- Worth Your Time

(Walking through the hallways with August and Tempest)

E

Marc: When I walk through hallways

Past classes and I walk all day

Just to leave that goddamn room

Just cause I can't stay

August: Cope and you will get away

Listen to us, we all have shame

Follow the rules in this game

And we will do the same

Marc: No you just don't understand

None of this was ever planned

I can't be in the goddamn

Rooms are never named

Tempest: You have gotten all this fame

Just follow us please try and pray

At least just try, dont be a slave

Marc: I have tried. I'm too afraid

F C (B)

Marc: You don't know how I feel

You think I like this activity

I have nothing to appeal

I leave the room in agony

Marc: I know you're just trying to help

But my health is fading down

Let me go away from here

Let me escape right now

Marc: Can't you listen, please, to me

I can not leave, I can not breathe

August: No I guess I can't understand

But let me lend a hand

Marc: And feel this misery?

F C (B)

Marc: You have tried to save my life

And I appreciate your tries

But I've given up, I can not lie

I'm just not worth your time

You have tried to save my life

And I appreciate your tries

But I've given up, I can not lie

I'm just not worth your time

Scene 3- Why Are We Here

Em G C

Marc: Where am I, where have I gone

Life is different without the innocent

Its like I stepped outside of the sliding doors

And until now I couldn't feel the sun

I could see things going around me

Chaos breaking out, ideas astound me

Nothing left to feel the pain

The glass is broken in my name

I'm carving out a piece of hate

My temper extends my need to wait

Em C Am

If you can't relate, then get out of my face

I'm not in the mood, my actions may be rude

But my feelings are speaking some truth

Em C G (F#)

August: Why exist if society dismisses variety

It misses entirely, why are we here

Marc: Guide me in here, why can't I hear the sign

To continue, why am I here if I live just to suffer

And when it appears to be enough

Where is a message, why is it tougher

To be believe in a reason to just keep on living

Why keep on giving, when no one gives to me

Sleep on it, dream on it

There's nothing to love when nothings in place

And now I don't want to escape the craze

Chaos makes life meaningful

Nothing makes life meaningfull

We exist to make life meaningful

When no one gives to make life meaningful

Make a list of the bad, and you'll find you had

Too many lines and points to continue

Burn up the list, doesn't leave it to this

The reasons are still not satisfied

Nothing creates my life

Em C G (F#)

How is there a god, if the good suffer

If that bad betray, and the righteous pay

How do we know to hang in there

Nothing tells us to hang in there

Why continue to die without a name

To die in vain, when you're living all the same

August: Release my shame and listen

Release the blame and soak it in

Release the pain and play the game

If you cheat, then you'll never win

Marc: How is there a god, if the good suffer

If that bad betray, and the righteous pay

How do we know to hang in there

Nothing tells us to hang in there

Why continue to die without a name

To die in vain, when you're living all the same

Should I play along

When happiness may be a long way home

Scene 4- Anxiety

(In a classroom)

Dm C F

Marc: I can't concentrate

This learning will have to wait

Open up the door and break out to the light

Escape society and run into the night

For life is quite a long journey to go

And I'm not ready for more pain to show

Irrational fears jump into woe

You don't want to reveal that you don't know

Cosme: Hey Marc, are you alright?

August: He might be. Slightly.

Dm C F

Marc: Trace the scratches in the sand

Hold the key in your hand

Secretly by my command

Open up and let me in

Look it up and take a seat

Let it go accept defeat

Let the mind wander

As the thoughts saunter

Dm C G

Let them come here

A cloud of smoke (is near)

Has just awoken fear

Why am I here?

(Banging on the door)

Dm Am A# F

Shaking fast, I've got to relax

Eliminate the facts of depression

And I'm dragging out the ax

Dm Am A# F

I'll chop up the sun, rationality is gone

My thoughts are all wrong

And I'm taking way too long

Dm Am A# C Dm

A war is breaking out, take cover

Fear has taken over

Dm Am A# Dm

Is there anyone out there who can feel my pain

My anxiety, my shame

Can't think of another happy thought

Everything and everyone is lost

Is there anyone out there who can feel my pain

My anxiety, my shame

Can't think of another happy thought

Everything and everyone is lost

(Scream)

Anxiety has taken over me

Scene 5- Understand

(Lunch)

Cécile- You haven't been paying attention much in school.

Cosme: It's cause he can't take their ruling over him.

August: Who are you to skin his attitude.

Win with gratitude. Buy and sell the goods, of life.

Cosme: I just think he's over exaggerating.

August: And you are plagiarizing, his words.

Marc: Listen all of you, you don't understand.

You can't understand, unless you live in my head.

Cécile: That's what he said. Cosme, his words cold and dead.

Marc: Listen all of you, you don't know what its like.

Every time I try to live my own life.

I'm always thinking. What might happen a second more.

Before the night is out. I start another war.

I'm going over so many thoughts

Now I'm wasting half my life. Tasting the evil sorts.

In all this mess, a struggle progresses

And my soul depresses, rest in my fort

I built with my cold dead words. My cold dead hands

You don't understand

You don't understand

You won't understand

It seems like I'm crazy

I think that I'm crazy

Creating these phases of troublesome thoughts

I think that I"m crazy lately

You don't understand

Cécile: They won't understand.

But I might. I might understand.

If you give me a chance. Marc

I might understand.

Scene 6- Crawling Out Of A Hole

Marc: When I'm lying no where.

I see nothing. I see blood dripping.

I see people dying. People that I love dying

People I love crying. Crashing into the mind

When I'm lying there

I see my fears stare at me. And never are they happy

(Pause)

Marc: My illness is destroying my barrier to reality

Letting my soul look at hatred and feel hatred's voice

It conjures up my jealousy until I can not see, anything else (its not destiny)

I lose everything, until I can't think of doing anything else

I'm stuck in between what's real and what is my dream

I want it to happen just so I can scream

I push them away 'till I'm tearing through the seam

I cannot crawl out, my lies they can see

This hole is too big for me to try and breathe

So please, just let me die in it, please

Just let me die in it please

Cécile: No, I won't

(Pause)

Marc: When I'm lying no where.

I see nothing. I see hating

And hurting and people

Screaming and burning

And my own fears taking over

Wars breaking the boundaries

And I cower. I let them take over

I let them break my head

And take the pain instead

Of trying to conquer it. I know

I must conquer it, but I can't

There is no answer.

Do you understand.

Cécile: I can't feel your pain.

But I've gone through almost the same

I understand you are in hell

I understand there's nothing to gain

If you let it take over

I'll try to understand that you can't

I'll try to understand for you, Marc

I'll try to understand.

Scene 7-

(The Night)

A D A# A Dm

Marc: Only see what I want you to see

I've a mask on that's frightening me

I hide from the truth, I hide from you

In my mind, there's nothing I can do

Only see what I want you to believe

Trying to help others when I can't breathe

Trying to escort them when i can't even leave

Myself, please, give some help to me

F G C Am

Marc: When I am no longer here

I've shown myself, I can't conquer fear

With my right hand I'll fade away

Out of place, out of mind I'll stay

And when the darkness comes

I'll hold my head away from the sun

The light will disappear it'll all be gone

And i won't be able to hurt anyone

(Phone Call)

A D A# A Dm

Cécile: What's wrong. Are you okay?

Marc: I just want the pain to go away.

Cécile: It might leave, if you can hold it.

Marc: Here's my soul, I've gone and sold it.

Cécile: You're lying to yourself, you can conquer it you can win

Marc: I have tried and I am tired, of telling people all the same

F G C Am

Look at me, can't I get home?

Nothing's safe, not my mind

Cécile: Listen here, you can go home

Marc: No I can't, I'm out of time

No I won't try suicide

I don't want to die

I want to love my life

And I don't want that to be a lie

Cécile: What is wrong. Are you okay?

Marc: I just want the pain to go away.

Cécile: Well you're not thinking clear.

Marc: I'm fed up with thinking fear.

Cécile: What is wrong. Are you okay?

Marc: I hate that phrase, just get away

I've caused too much harm

There's no reason for you to stay

For me

Stay with me, lay with me

Pray with me, die with me

(Die with me)

A D A# A Dm

Marc: Only see what I want you to see

I've a mask on that's frightening me

I hide from the truth, I hide from you

In my mind, there's nothing I can do

Only see what I want you to believe

Trying to help others when I can't breathe

Trying to escort them when i can't even leave

Myself, please, give some help to me

Marc: When I am no longer here

i've shown myself, I can't conquer fear

With my right hand I'll fade away

Out of place, out of mind I'll stay

And when the darkness comes

I'll hold my head away from the sun

The light will disappear it'll all be gone

And i won't be able to hurt anyone
