Captive Insomnia

Verse-
The nights drag on into dawn
I can't close my eyes for fear of dreams
Where I see your lips move
But the sound is faded from the scene
And in these haunting memories
I remember your last good-bye
As a silent prayer stuck in my mind.

Chorus-
YOU!
You terrorize my dreams
Every waking moment slowed
Where this clock refuses to tell
How much time you've cost me
I'm held captive in my own...
My own...
Insomnia

Verse-
It's the shadows on the walls
Playing tricks before my eyes
I'm seeing you when you're not there
Silence screams a bloody murder in my ear.

Chorus.

Bridge-
So, why won't you leave?
Why can't I see?
Where's the antidote to my tears?
Where's the remedy to my heart
That froze when I reached zero below
I didn't sell myself to
And yet I'm chained in this captivating insomnia.

Outro-
Captive (times 4)
In-som-ni-a.
