Sparkles within my eyes fade dim as I ascend
about the clouds and retreat.
The cold and bitter winter falls all around me,
reminding me of the warm and sunny place I once knew.
For everything had turned into a dominant gray.
Lost within everything I thought I knew, but
instead just led myself to believe. The hidden
dreams where my soul now lies, you must search
and summon my soul.
The last of the light fades to black as I lay
there hidden inside a cavern inside my head.
Waiting, yearning to be found and called out to.
Distance between what I know is real and what I
think is real is what holds me back from ever
