Subject: a song

the lights are on
but you're not home
you've drifted off
somewhere alone
somewhere that's safe
no questions here
a quiet place
where you hide from your fears

sometimes when you're out of rope
the way to climb back up is clear
the walls you build around yourself
i guess they also keep you here
are you afraid of what they think?
whoever "they" happen to be
or are you hiding from the scars of your own reality?

so you sedate
and drown in vain
you've got a pill
for every day
a suit and tie
to mask the truth
its ugly head
is starting to show through

the monster you're feeding,
your lack of perception
the things that you do
to fulfill addictions
the light at the end of your tunnel is closing
what is it that you're so afraid of exposing?
you'd give it all up for what's there for the taking
whatever it takes to keep your hands from shaking
the same things you're thinking might make you feel better
the same things that probably got you here
