"Maze" as written by and Ross/petterson Hetherington....
The overhead view is of me in a maze
And you see what I'm hunting a few steps away
And I take a wrong turn and I'm on the wrong path
And the people all watching enjoy a good laugh

Embarrassed with failure, I try to reverse
The course that my tread had already traversed
So doing the trauma engulfing my dream
Invaded through what was an unguarded seam

The torrent of helplessness swept me away
To the cavern of shame and the hall of dismay
Inside me a voice was repeating this phrase:
"You've lost it, you'll never get out of this maze"
You'll never get out of this maze x7

    General CommentThis song is about playing the arcade game, Pac-Man.

    "The overhead view is of me in a maze
    And you see what I'm hunting a few steps away"

    Pac-Man is moving through the maze, and he's hunting power pellets.

    "And I take a wrong turn and I'm on the wrong path
    And the people all watching enjoy a good laugh"

    Uh oh! Pac-Man made a wrong turn and ran across some ghosts!

    "Embarrassed with failure, I try to reverse
    The course that my tread had already traversed"

    Pac-Man tries to escape the ghost by turning around and going the way he came.


    "So doing the trauma engulfing my dream
    Invaded through what was an unguarded seam"

    Pac-Man went through one of the those side exits, and came out the other side.

    "The torrent of helplessness swept me away
    To the cavern of shame and the hall of dismay"

    But the ghosts got him anyway.

    "Inside me a voice was repeating this phrase:
    "You've lost it, you'll never get out of this maze"

    No matter how many pellets he eats, Pac-Man only finds himself in another maze, after maze, after maze...

    General CommentI'm pretty sure it's "subduing the trauma" not " so doing the trauma"
