Enveloped in darkness,
I can't escape the past.
Running as far as I can
The pain doesn't cease to last.

I'm trying harder than I've ever known
But it's still here,
So deep within.
Crushing me, grasping me, pulling me down;
It's all too much to bear.

It's coming closer
Drawing nearer in the dark.
I lie awoke, tossing and turning
Angry at the past and afraid of the future.

They're treading nearer
Encroaching on my dreams
I know they're coming to take me away;
All is not what it seems.
