It’s eternal pain.
It’s screaming in vain
You crave it so bad
To just get back
Away from being depressed and sad
Too bad that expertise you lack

You want to escape
Away from reality
Loose yourself in dreams
Where your life's a fantasy
And every moment gleams

You want to be
The girl of your daydream
You want to see
Yourself have high esteem.
Live life to the extreme.

You desire that life
Is a fairy-tale
Where your most perilous strife
Is an illusory devil’s impale

You yearn for escapism
From the death-defying veracity
Where you can present your criticism
Without enduring self-pity

You look for a way out
You grope for pieces
The puzzle is about
To finish with it’s clinches

You want to escape
The war, the sufferings
Emerge from darkness’ cape
Run away from all the worldly things.
Cover the shadows with tape

You’ve got to go
There’s no other way out
Down below
You hear a faint shout

Someone’s calling you
It is far too late
Nothing left to do
You’re filled with yet deeper hate

Shaking you
Pulling you
Time to wake up
Time to face the world
Face the dangers unfurled.

The dream is over
You’re out of your reverie
You’re still in terror
‘Cause it’s all still reality
