Lost 1/29/01

Spinning round and round
Don't know where I am
Can't tell which way
Is up or down
Nothing's clear but that I'm lost
Yeah, lost for sure

The way is never quite open
Point in any direction I might follow
That I can know
Just where I'm headed
For I've been wandering so long
I don't even recognize the circles

Well today is looking clear
But my mind is cloudy
The heavy dark of fear
I simply cannot lift
Breaking through the mist
Is more than I can sift
Through today

Did you ever feel completely alone?
When it feels like no one's home
But your house is full of people
No one seems to understand
Just how you feel
And death is looking like
A better option

Yeah, listen to me now
There's a better day to come
You will see the light of day
Just when the darkness
Seems to never go away
Pervasive as it is,
Nothing lasts forever
So just remember

Well today is looking clear
But my mind is cloudy
The heavy dark of fear
I simply cannot lift
Breaking through the mist
Is more than I can sift
Through today

The way is never quite clear
Point in any direction I might follow
That I can know
Just where I'm headed
For I've been wandering so long
I don't even recognize the circles
Yeah, the circles I've made
They're getting smaller all the time
Everything's contracting

But someday it will be expanding
Letting the light in you will see
That nothing's as bad as it seems

Oh but it seems so bad right now
