The endless days go by
A million miles from the world
out there
The silence makes me want to
scream or die
Living heartbeat to heartbeat
in a black tomb

An ill wind blows here
heartless and cruel
It blinds you and deafens you
All your memories grow distant
Everything fades into the
nameless darkness

until you face the mirror
of your soul

And if you don't lose your mind
you can drink from the well
of inspiration
And if you ever make it back --

you can set the world
on fire.
