My head is heavy

with loneliness

as i sail into the moon

watching my reflection

run in circles

over and over i see

the deepest part of me

become lit with enmity

and endless misery

for it's difficult to look forward

when you live in a memory

and it's hard to kill

the voices that torture you

when those voices

come from your own mind

Why must I

hurt myself so?

hoping for a better tomorrow

when i make it

so it never shall be so?

I must find a way

to outsmart my sadness

to look past my own


to let my feelings go

to let go of my fear

and to finally let go

of the thought of finding

a better world

So from this day forth

and this night that is to fall

I will set my sail forever

I will never stop moving forward

and i shall ride the lightning

and swim in the tsunami

because i can overcome

any odds that i already have not faced

I will find the land and shores of bliss

just speaking of the thought

makes me taste the sands

of times to come

follow me into the abyss

and i promise

the shore awaits
