Shoulders pinned down to the floor
By gravity and lack of sleep
I couldn't ask for more than what you told me
And it's the only thing I get

As I drift across these helpless thoughts
As my mind sticks pins in itself
I'm breaking everything down again
I'm losing everything now

I've seen people my age
All those people who stayed inside those walls they've built
And this won't change
I'm not any different from them -- Just my first-person illusion
Do we really know anyone, anyway?
Does this really matter anyway?

The storm had hit with words you said
So I buried my heart in the snow
I prayed for spring as these days fled
And my insides forever are cold
Still you spoke, your voice so soft
"Let me take you away, you'll be free"
As I awoke, immediately, it was only me
It was only a dream

Though even dreams fade with passing days
It seems my only escape is to just lay awake

The past is a photograph, one that I never planned to keep
As I lie here staring skyward, I swore I'd never fall asleep

You said you'd take me away and I'd be free
I can't distinguish dreams from reality
