about

When the walls you thought were sturdy and the floor you thought would hold your weight shimmer and fail, revealing themselves to be nothing more than vision, dependent upon belief to exist.

lyrics

Caught in a hole
And there’s no way out
No windows
And I reach for the staircase
Two at a time
Running blind into walls
My vision
Is clouded by my mask
And I ask

Is this future before me mine?
All I can see is my past
Running over me
Help me to break from its
Grasping at straws
Empty hands reaching out
For my throat
Choking smoke lifting me
From my body
I am

Lost on a pier
Let the waves crash on
I’m drowning
As red lights turn to slumber
Why am I here?
Will the elements
Come with me?
When water turns to stone
And the wind burns the

Future before me
Is all I can see just my past
Running over me?
Help me to break from its
Grasping at straws
Empty hands reaching out
For my throat
Choking smoke lifting me
From my body
I am

I am
I am
Who was I supposed to be?
Who will I become?
Who am I now?
Who am I now?
I am
