Chained in My Mind

I'm not in the place where my body is walking
I can't reach the lips on my body that is talking
I can't move the arms on the body that is fighting
I'm not, on the earth anymore 
I'm floating, lost in my own mind
Can someone help?
Nobody can help me
I'm a prisoner in ways
I don't control what I do
I can't, no, that's a lie
I could, if I tried 
On the surface I am cool and complacent
But not deep below the surface
I'm a lost man
I don't know where I am
Because deep down I know
That it's easier below the surface
I chained myself here in the depth and the darkness
And now, as I try and break free
I can't, no, that's a lie
I could, if I tried
But I pinned myself down to this lonely abyss
And now, I'm dead
On the inside.
