Waken from your slumber
Dreams will have to wait
Close off your weary mind
Shoulder the weight

All that you wanted once, negotiated away
All that you thought you could reach, pushed back another day

Gone is the day
As the stars begin to yawn
Gone is the day
So far away, the dawn

Shaken and deafened by the ticking clock
I trusted in my heart and now I see I’m blind
The weary journey from void to void
Filled in with memories, a constant growth through time
I squint through angry tears, comforting myself
My image of my ego splinters and decays

I cringe in the light
Blinded by the holy image
I cringe in the light
To my dying breath, I’ll dig

I cringe at the light
Til I reach the inner ceiling
We cringe at the light
Fall into the endless void

Waken to the morning sun
Through milky eyes
Until my dying day
My mediocrity shall suffice
