Life Jacket

I can’t shake this feeling of being dead inside

I’ve tried all the drugs and therapy that you can supply

Lost in a world created to decieve

Help me find the map that I need

Show me the route

That leads me to the truth

Then I can escape

From this distorted mistake

Get me back to the realm of normal

Let my eye’s see into the portal

When you come looking for me

I’ll be in that place that rests between the sky and the sea

Repeat After Me

Fallen from branch to the ground
Tread on

Disintegrated by the cold rain

Long gone when months pass by
I look to spring and forget how you died
Summer comes along again
The death that Autumn brought with it is to blame

This cycle of life and death, this is nature's beautiful game.
