I want to escape,

Escape from here,

Total frustration,

Anger, fear.


I want to escape,

Escape from here,

Too much confusion,

Too many tears.


I thought I was free,

Away from that darkened journey,

Only to find,

Myself going crazy.


Take me away,

Away from it all,

Head is going to explode,

Someone catch the fall.


Wait a moment,

You can't go anywhere,

Look in the mirror,

Look at that stare.


Eyes bloodshot,

Sleep deprivation,

Muscle aching,

Total agitation.


Feel crazy on the inside,

Look crazy on the outside too,

Someone pull this trigger,

Before I pull it before you.


Locked inside,

This prison cell,

The stretch is lengthy,

Feels like hell.


Not turning off,

No way, No chance,

Inside this mind of mine,

A continual fucked up dance. 


Normality has gone,

Routine too,

Replaced with a madness,

That familiar for me and you. 


As I sit by,

Pondering what to do,

Suddenly a month goes by,

The years have flew.


Trying to fight,

The madness within,

Grey hair on my brow,

Perhaps, I can still win. 


I close my tired eyes,

To shut down a difficult day,

Close down those difficult memories,

No chance, no way.
