A take on the ever so popular 'light at the end of tunnel' experience

A new song for today

To take the nightmares away,

An old song for tomorrow

To remind me of my sorrow.


And through the dark I stumble,

There's nothing yet I mumble

Words without meaning and a cry

But not for help, I just want to die


And from the nothing there's an answer

I feel a shiver, it's like cancer

But it means I'm not alone

In this nothingness I own


And my mind starts to wonder

Could be an imposter, I ponder

Who have I let in and do I mind?

Is there no one there or am I blind?


Silence yet again, I go deeper into the nothing

But it must have been true, I felt something

'Who are you? And why have you come?'

I feel the slightest beat in my eardrum.


My eyes hurt, there's a light, it's faded

So it is true, I have been invaded

And that beat is clear, footsteps just ahead

'Oh, it's you... So it's finally over, I'm dead.'
