  • The air's so thick
    It blurs my vision
    I can't think straight
    In this condition
    This dim lit hall
    Is stretching further
    Not knowing
    What I might discover

    Through a door half open
    A painted light bulb swings
    Casting someone's shadow
    Reaching towards me

    Something draws me here
    Not sure
    Feeling Drained
    Still I am curious
    Haunts me
    Taunts me
    Now I start to Gravitate

    Remain composed
    I hear some laughter
    The darkness in me
    Moving faster
    A handle turned
    A door is opened
    Ashtrays
    Cigarettes still smoking

    And there again before me
    The painted light bulb swings
    And see I cast the shadow
    The one I saw moving

    Cannot catch my breath
    Can't cope
    His face turns toward me
    Can't be
    Not me
    The man in the mirror

    It's all too clear
    As I stood there
    Acknowledged him
    In reflective glare

    I don't quite understand
    Why any of this
    Is who I am
    I'm damned cause I doubt
    It's part of me
    Trick of the mind
    Pschitso you see

    It's like awakening
    I'm in
    Someone else's skin
    Molds me
    Holds me
    Controlled
    Left me Drained and empty

    Transformed
    Shifting
    I peer inside
    Like quicksand
    You pulled me
    Down deeper
    All twisted inside of me
