"Out of Depth"

I creep

Lost in the absurdity

Stuck here for eternity

Tasks pile up around

I'm left behind

High speed

Driving toward insanity

Chained to all uncertainty

Aiming for a brick wall

In my mind

Slave to time

It's not living

Can't take back

Just keep on giving

Which corner of this

Broken world is mine?

I shake

Hitting levels past extreme

Survival only on caffeine

Work and sleep and eat

Can't be my life

Crash land

Sleep and have a peaceful dream

Watching empty minds careen

Through a world which

Knows no toil or strife

Burn my hope

Subjugate me

Twist my soul

Uncomplicate me

Drain my mind

And leave me here to die
