Frozen in place
Stuck in time and in space
Never leaving a trace
Landing hard on my face

And the ropes that I find
Wrapped so tight in my mind
They were my own design
As I choke to define

How I'm sealed in my fate
Nothing to clean my slate
All I have is the date
When I learned life too late

My brain is stuck half-past dead
My thoughts burning in red
While I lie in my bed
Held hostage in my head
