Vicious like the wires crawling across the floor.

Though I figure it hard to find,

There is nothing beyond that big black door

Of my mind.

Yes, that.

The stupid thing that would rather bind

Me limb from limb and crush me like a gnat.

Vicious is the machine inside.

Binding, crying out to me.

That is the forever tide

Of a mind that is not free.


Did I mention that before?

Being free from my inner thoughts?

Everything burns at my core

When I know I am tied in knots.

So vicious is the wires, the machine, the gears.

A machine lies inside of me, and it gnaws on my fears.
