The darkness clears & light resumes

I should now feel safe or so I assume

I am trapped in my house, I just can\'t leave

The phone rings, I freeze, unable to breathe

 

I watch the wakers moving through the day

I shake & tremble just like I did yesterday

I tell myself that there is nothing to fear

But something is here, I can feel it near

 

Trapped in a world from which I cannot escape

Caught in a repeating loop that I cannot break

Is my worrying existence real or just fake?

Have I made the right choice or an awful mistake?

 

Caught in a world from which I cannot break

Trapped in a repeating loop I cannot escape

Is my fearful existence real or simply fake?

Have I made the right choice or a dreadful mistake?

 

The daylight leaves & the dark resumes

I move slowly upstairs & hide in my room

The blanket of dark leaves me so afraid

I\'m scared of the ghosts my mind has made

 

The sleepers drift into their world so calm

I tremble & shake awaiting some harm

I climb into bed so the covers can protect

Can\'t sleep, something is here, I can detect
