~~It's this circumstance.
Look beyond the glance.
You'll find
someone who is losing their mind.
Never it is what it would seem,
sweating and stricken in a naked dream.
Do you see me there?
Am I hidden behind skin so bare?
Or are you caught up in what you have to say,
owning the right to have your own way?
I am driven
accelerated on the gas but never ridden
of this tormented place.
I must face
inside of my head there's too much open space.
And there is danger there,
underlining fear.
 
It's this circumstance.
I don't stand a chance!
I am hurting and frightened spinning out of control,
to unreachable depths that stake claim to my soul.
And it's madness!
Look beyond the smile and see the badness,
the spent of two lover's waste.
Now what have we faced?
It's sadness.......
That's all there is left,
deprived, constantly bereft.
Is there a future there?
Well, if there is I'm not aware.
But I am holding on,
though I'll admit the grip is not as strong.
Someone who is in a trance,
well, maybe, just maybe it is this circumstance.
