Waking up in bed, it’s 2AM
The city below us is still asleep
While I’m here
Sitting, thinking, wondering out loud as the time ticks by-
“What are we doing here?”
Faster and faster, I see myself slip
Beneath the grasp of reality
Hopeless remedies, a cure for the past
Saying this will make it slip,
Straight outta your mind.
Their tempting words,
Slipping in and out of my head
Saying we can help. Screaming let us in.
But the devil’s who they’re with.
No they’re not here to help.
They want to see me fall, slip and fail
Then I turn around, trying to shut them out.
I see your face at peace lying by my side.
Hope then finds my heart.
Burning out the dark
You and I together are infinite, invincible.
I slip back down as the nightmares end.
As the day breaks, the darkness flies
And for another day…I’m safe from the lies.
