Invisible smoke seeps through the windows 

A darkness I can't explain has me surrounded 

The gravel dirt like ashes 

Of people as they come and leave, 

Leaving behind a dusty residue 

As their tires spin away

All of the emotion lingers

The scenery stays the same

Lost souls wander in circles

Trying to fill the void

Cars and houses,

Just Cars and houses

Neglected children, broken toys

The built up anger escapes through the chimney

In the form of smoke 

But it lingers: there is no peace

Locked inside our own worlds

Running in circles through the past

I choke on the repetition 

I cough..

And trip over the low fog of indecision 

It's dark all of the time it seems

I can't breathe 

I go about everything cautiously 

Always in danger...

The people are so unaware

Tucked away in our cozy homes

This life is a slow waltz in the dark 

Quite bizzare

A never ending dance

Tip toe around the confusion, indifference 

And leave it up to chance

I might fall today,

Maybe I'll take a jump 

Maybe I'll spin in circles...

And never ever stop
