Make BelieveToday I have realized that nobody caresYou can tell by the looks; all of the staresI just drift some place quiet with no one aroundAnd I relish the silence, the "nothing's here" soundIt is here that I stay with pencil in handHere where i dream up that too distant landIn those streets people dance, in the markets they singThere are shops aplenty and colored birds take wingEach person that passes is oh so uniqueLook there! A man in search of his drinkAnd there do i spy a magnificent beastAs his master goes off in search of a feastBut this wonderful place that i wish i could goIs but a dreamed-up land, quite simply a showBack here in the real world I'm still very aloneAnd dull people converse in dull monotoneOne day I shall find this magnificent sightI'll discover this land that's filled me with delightAway I shall go and be heard form no moreJust as soon as I find the key to that hidden door
Memories...Quickly, now I'm screamingHurry, now I'm dreamingWill this mightmare come to pass?Wildly, I'm fallingDesperately, I'm callingDoesn't anyone else see?This other one with my emotionsNow they're flowing like an oceanPerhaps this is just a phase?The memories come flooding backAs if a sudden heart attackWhat is it that I will find?I'm caught up in a pouring rainThe tears I cried while in painWhy di no one come save me?Advancing in the darknessI look and he is heartlessIs Death lurking mercifully?I lost a hidden treasureLost it now, foreverWill I ever be okay?
Crazy DreamAs i wonder through this hazeI fear your disappointed gazeI know that I have let you downI can read it in your frownThe look that I can barely seeIs severely angry with meI can't tell why you feel this wayAfter all, you're the one with sanityI'm begging down here on my kneesMy tear-choked voice is crying "Please..."I'm drowning in this painAs i break once againWhy does no one seem to careThat I'm stuck inside this nightmare
Read Between the LinesWHAT Is that look for? IHAVE Done nothing to you. AmI To blame for your short-commings and mistakes? You'veBECOME The monster, not me. But the mirror declares that you and I are one.
Between the LinesI go to my roomMy haven from the worldA place where the value of SILENCEIs priceless, meaning more than wordsIn a single silence, more wordsAre said in the look that HOLDSYour own. But more oftenThan not, silences tell theAnswers that I knew deep in
The Edge of FateAs I stand on theEdge of losing everythingYour voice calls to me.I feel as if IAm six feet from an endlessEmpty forever.Hold me now, for ICan see into the deepestShadows of my grave.Almost as if itWere an intended deceitI try clutching life.Is there anythingLeft within my beating heartThat is not worthless?I laugh in the faceOf the one come to claim meA challenge to Death.A calm expressionManages to form uponMy desolate face.My carriage awaitsEternity is callingI hearken to her.
