I awake to find no one can hear me
Tonight, I am here on my own
The sights, the colours are escaping
I'll stay right here where they left me

Maybe I'm trapped in fearful apprehension
Forever waiting for a moment of clarity
The pale white coats, the empty space to which they led me
This has become my final place

I like to sleep in darkness
To leave behind the shadows
And in the evening whispers
I thrash alone in anguish

Restlessly wait for sunrise
A fickle game to be played
And with the light of morning
Treatment begins, oh help me

Through all the horror and the nightmares
The restless sleep, insanity
The walls cave in to frown upon me


from Still Waiting, released February 1, 2014
