  • 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
    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
    Left me Drained and empty

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