My tortured mind oppresses me
Tears down barriers to my defenseless soul.
Sins of the past, not my own
Twist my heart and smother my soul.

There is no escape in the depths of my twisted mind
Haunted and stalked by history.
My eyes blind to the world around me
My soul locked away in desolate solitude.

Nothing left but desperate pain
Numbness taking me slowly away
Lulled into an endless night
Of harsh, persistent pain.
