I bid to you a calm farewell
and into my lost world I dare retreat
to the one safe place within my mind
which harbors such dangers and fear

my insanity pulls me back
to my reclusive dwelling of dark
where I'm free to speak the words
which I've locked within myself

I'm not lost for I know well
this location to where I've been summoned
for so long I've lived here aching to break out
and now that I've graced freedom I willingly comply

in my home of dark sarcasm I turn against myself
it's a game we play in here
in which I test myself for what I lack
until I crumple down to nothing, aching to break out
