Dark Noon

dawn, another sun rises
another day begins
but my day is only ending

time passes, nothing changes
my journey leads me nowhere
and I'm not in the mood to run

I know, I know what I want
but I just don't know
how to go about getting it

I'm trapped, in a prison
a prison of the mind
and I hold the key from me

I scream, scream at myself
tell myself to get up
but my legs don't move

I'm okay, everything's alright
it all looks fine, you say
but I'll tell a different tale

daydream, dream away the day
I want to live in a fantasy
but I can't find it anywhere

my eyes, open to darkness
my world is shrouded in night
and I can't find the way
