Bring me some clarity

In this ocean that surrounds me.

A royal sea of misery

Bring me some respite

From this slow motion catastrophe

That stops me being anything good

And chips away at my resolve

Til I’m no better

Than the monsters that surround me

Lying and breaking the rules

Just to feel alive

One day in a hundred

Where I am the real me

There ain’t nothing but the darkness here

Cinder blocks and locks

And the same thing

Day in, day out

Find me some mirth

Brighten my day

Give me something

To make this time

Anything other than a wasted

And let the hard times

Make me strong enough

To lift this burden

Chained to my heart
