I close my eyes, a flash of light
Kinetic energy splits the night
Over and over, no end in sight
Why does the silence plague me?

No sounds, all thoughts are muted
For this I am no longer suited
Hoping for signs, yet refuted
Looking for someone to save me

Thrown to the shadows, so bleak
Is it the light, I constantly seek?
Body used, my mind, too weak
Letting go, the will you gave me

Turn toward the darkness, unspoken
My spirit is tired and broken
Captured in a tomb, I soak in
The power you have to enslave me
