lyrics

I'm walking on the line, it's growing thin, kept steady so far, but who knows when I'll fall in?
My eyes deceive me when there's nothing here to see
I am alone here and it's hard to live with me

Walking in circles but at least I can still move
My thoughts will poison me and bar me from the truth
Why am I falling in myself? Even though there are no flames I fear that this is hell

In the Land of Dust, the high will fall
And rot and rust will cover all

Am I forever confined to this cold and cluttered mind?
Awake independent of the passage of time
Around me, the world turns to dust

My thoughts do not make sense, but I still feel
Have to convince myself that nightmares are not real
Why am I sinking in this brain? I fear despite my efforts that I'm already insane

When everyone else is asleep, why am I cursed to stay awake?
Marching like a soldier through these waking dreams
Gun in hand and desperate for escape
I know this is not who I am, and I know you are here
I'll hold on no matter what I say, I'll hold on to you my dear

And I want to be free, and I want to be me again
I want to be free, and I want to be me

I won't be forever confined to this cold and cluttered mind
And I will return to the passage of time
Around me, the world turns to dust

I want to be free
