Shadows

It's all about the tricks our minds can play on us, more than any Machiavellian scheme people try to play

Eyes are open wide for the first time 

The world is broken but now I know my enemy

The innocence of things stripped of pleasantries 

The world's stripping away what's left of my sanity

 

I clawed at the hope, but all I did was shed more blood

But one day I'll ascend to the stratosphere

 

Despair riddles and instantly doubt embraces you

Whispers from lips invisible, the shadows grow longer

Judgement harsher than the truth begins to engulf you

Wolves scratching at the door, louder now, stronger

 

I now know I can do the best I can

My voice left hoarse and I'm hopeless in the void

My arms heavy, weak, soon everything will come clear

Before everything I love is destroyed

 

I clawed at the hope, but all I did was shed more blood

But I'll fly beyond the earth, somewhere better than here

 

Despair riddles and instantly doubt embraces you

Whispers from lips invisible, the shadows grow longer

Judgement harsher than the truth begins to engulf you

Wolves scratching at the door, louder now, stronger

The End
