Awake

I am lost
The footprints that I left have disappeared
For now I am driving blind
 
Accelerate
Without a destination to welcome me
This road is just an endless loop
 
[Refrain]
Every time I close my eyes
The noise inside me amplifies
I can't escape
I relive every moment of the day
Every misstep I have made
Finds a way it can invade
My every thought
And this is why I find myself awake
 
Directionless
The letters on the signs have long since faded
The sky conspires to swallow me
 
Paid the price
For burning all the maps to warm myself
I threw their ashes to the wind
 
[Refrain]  
 
Walk away
Time to leave the realm of the familiar
To find a place where sleep can come
 
Hesitate
For one last time, I shout into the sky
To wake the ones I'll leave behind
 
[Refrain x2]
