about

Track #3 off From Darkness To Light (2013)

lyrics

Lost again in a well-known trance
Where everybody is gone
And you can't find your way back home
The fog chokes the stars
There's no light where you are
Then you see that this is reality

So tell me why, why should I lie
And say that I love a life I hate inside
When there are so many people out there
To love and care for
But I just can't find
The means to get out of this hole

You taught me long ago
That I'm stuck in this place I loathe
Where silence is meant to cause us pain

I like to remember with insight
Until it becomes obsessive and trite
Now I'm driven to believe
That if man is only free locked in a prison of memories
Then maybe I'd rather be a slave
To an amnestic mentality

So tell me why, why should I try
To live a life that I despise
When there are so many people out there
To love and care for
But I just can't find
The strength to climb out of this hole

You taught me long ago
That I'm stuck in this place I loathe
Where silence is meant to cause us pain
'Cause I constantly turn away
And keep making the same mistakes
So much for love...

Is misery a syndrome of the mind's disease
A reaction to our failure
To prove who we ought to be

You taught me long ago
That I'm stuck in this place I loathe
Where silence is meant to cause us pain
'Cause I constantly turn away
And keep making the same mistakes
So much for love...
