Demons

Demons chase the man in his dreams

Through agony and self inflicted screams

He thinks this has to be it

He thinks his sanity must still exist

-------------

He knows he tries

-------------

Pain flows down like tears

Magnify all of his fears

Things not seen become like lies

Remembered as futile cries

-------------

He knows he tries

-------------

He comes to face his end

Dying by those he swore to defend

With no escape from the things in his mind

Struggling with nothing to find

-------------

He knows he tries
