Why must the mountain be so far away?

For the running of steeds cannot come into play.

One mile is over, yet another proceeds.

I can't think of the reason I'd do these good deeds.

The sun shines through droughts, the moon through the snow,

There are things in this place that I'd rather not know.

Like an infinite labyrinth this place has become,

From the darkest imaginaton these beasts can't be from.

If time is an illution, should I just turn back,

Or will this, too, last forever, will an end this place lack?

I feel so damn lost, and I haven't a map.

I can hear nearly nothing, but that of a tap.

I know of the pain, but I just cannot feel,

For the things I so fear are exceptionally real.

The grey clouds are coming, and I'm afraid this is a storm.

I just need someone here right now to make my soul feel warm.

I can't remember sunshine, and I can't forget the moon,

The only thing my mind can hear is this lovely tune.

And as I sing this lovely tune, I hear the steps behind me,

The thing I fear the completely most is finally coming blindly.

I start to sprint my way without looking back in fear,

I turn the corner, face the beast, right there, it is a mirror.

There is nothing here at all to keep this beast at bay,

Oh, why must the mountain be so far away?
