"Deep into that darkness peering
Long I stood there
Wondering, fearing, doubting
Dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before"
-Edgar Allen Poe

(Verse 1)

Two roads in front of me

One leads to sanity

The place I need

The other leads to morality

I'm torn in two

And if only you were here

To free me from myself

If only iron bars weren't

The only thing I could feel



My life is a movie

Playing before my eyes

Decisions playing out

Like a game of chess

Trying to balance the

Highs and lows of my life

As gray walls surround me

And helpless hands reach out

The weight of everything so heavy

Won't someone (x2)

Won't someone save me from myself


(Verse 2)

Take back all the lies you fed me

Illusions of a perfect life

If only I could see

The monster isn't you

It's me


(Chorus again)



The black is becoming me

And I'm becoming it

Won't someone please (x3)

Won't someone please save me from myself


(Chorus x2 with harmony)
