Darkness confuses simple perception
Senses are dimmed with blatant lies
Beneath the cover of a haunted night
Some, they escape; some, they die

Caged by the thousands; screaming and hopeless
Finding nothing but despair in the fight
Under the reign of nothing but misconception
The incessant flow of darkness rides on through the night

Imprisoned with death; white over black
Seeking the meaning that never returns
Sinking deeper and burning alive
Eventual release is the constant concern

Death doesn't end continuous torture
Tormented existence leads to suicide
Inferior and meaningless; forced to endure
Living in the darkness; dying inside

I've had doubts, I have failed. I've fucked up, I've had plans. Doesn't mean I should take my life with my own hands. -Aaron Lewis (Staind)
