Imprisoned in lucidity
Insomnia, my captor
Neural pathways ablaze with questions
Darkness void of answers

Self-inflicted, still the victim
Reflection can be torment
One more hour inside my head
Can push me past the limit

I want out of this waking dream
Night without sleep
Torturing me
Trapped in my mind
There is no escape
'Til my thoughts make peace with me

I call your name
Show me the way to meet you
Halfway between heaven and earth

Must've been there all along
Creeping in the shadows
Leering in with ill intent
A deadly force to follow

Clouded thoughts will pave the way
For limitless conjecture
Darkened minds bring only pain
And fear and death together

Deadly fixation
My mind is not my own
Brink of obsession
Leave me alone

I've searched the world to find
Solace of any kind
Take back the reins
Of what remains of my sanity
And now I'm thinking
I won't think about the way it's been
A lesson learned too late
And one I'll learn again
