from by Arakh



Such a fragile place where you're confined,
Hard to trust yourself, a veil blocks the light.
Is reality a state of mind?
Make your way out of the night.

No way to stay,
You'll face the day.

He sits alone and bleeds out on the page,
Has to find a way to drown out his pain.
Knows he'll find an escape on the stage,
Makes his way out of the rain.

Something's hiding on the edge of view,
A strength inside him that he never knew.
Something's tearing at his very soul,
Found a semblance of control.

No way to stay,
I'll face the day.

So save me.

No way to stay,
You'll face the day.

Life has changed and I'm afraid to die,
Now I know how it feels to fly.
The mandala turns before my eyes,
Chains the demons deep inside.

So save me.
