Every step I take in this world seems to sink
as if I'm sleepwalking and the light I see is fading
to concede my defeat would be bliss to me
my vision begins to fade; a tunnel around my sight
the future seems so improbable
if only I could run faster than these demons
if only I could fly faster than these lies

I keep closing my eyes hoping to dream and never return
to slit my wrists and spill my blood
would sing the sweet song of oblivion
these leeches that come to me at night
these sirens softly singing almost have me swimming
these phantoms that whisper to me;
their breath so cold, their voices so loud

the ties that bind
would steal the breath from me
the ties that bind
begging me to sleep yet I choose to live
and reject this demise
for hope remains where there is life

my life, this day has almost claimed me
yet tonight... tonight I am alive

all it would take is a word, a single loving word from you
and I would have the strength to overcome
the walls that I have built up against myself
