Every night I count the miles,

Trying to escape all the smiles.

Each step I take a desperate attempt,

As I whisper to myself a silent lament.

How can I escape the demon inside,

When there is nowhere I can truly hide?

You cannot outrun a part of yourself,

Nor rip out your soul to place on a shelf.

I am trapped in a loop that leads right back,

To the part of my mind that I seem to lack.

There's an emptiness here where the demon sits,

But it's only my eyes that look out from the pit.
