The trapdoor is broken,

There is no escape hatch,

You're trapped inside your mind,

You have an itch to scratch,

Your body is a prisoncell,

You're held against your will,

You can't escape this fortress,

Your struggle is uphill,

The walls are closing in,

You're struggling to breathe,

Theres nothing you can do,

You're never gonna leave,

Your chest is getting tight,

You try to gasp for air,

Now you're on your own,

Theres noone else there,

Black clouds engulf you,

Your confidence is broken,

This isn't a path you would have chosen,

Smile they say,

I try this everyday,

You can't just pull yourself together,

It dont work that way,

Maybe you'll feel better tomorrow,

Maybe this will pass,

Take a long hard look in the looking glass,

It's all in your head,

You're just going mad,

Going mad he says.......

Going mad.
