"Will someone please answer!"
I scream and I Shout,
I'm trapped in this hole
And there is no way out!

Will someone, anyone find me?
I'm stuck in the abyss.....
who ever said that ignorance was bliss?

Never seen sunlight, nor moon in the sky.
All I can do is lay here and die.
Stay in this hole like a bird in a cage.
Lie here and rot till the end of my days.

I live a life of hopes and dreams,
But they all end in dying screams.
The sun shies behind my perfect cloud,
Stuck in the shade, lost in the drought...

When memory is gone and faded away,
You can bet on me being here to stay.
No matter how many times I try to leave,
I always fall without feeling the breeze.

One good thing has come of my stay,
I know this hell is my private getaway.
Straying away from the troubles at hand,
The hole has become my promised land.

I lived a life of hopes and dreams,
But they all ended in dying screams.
The sun shone behind my perfect cloud,
What I wouldn't give to be there now.

The next time you see me,
I'll be in real deep.
The sky will be dark,
And i'll look like a freak.

What more can you want from me?
I've only ever done what you've asked.
Now because you were my guide,
My future has become your past.

I want a life of hopes and dreams,
Don't care if they end in dying screams.
The sun may shine behind my perfect cloud,
But at least i would know it was there.........

    again, thanks P.D. honestly i got the inspiration for this one from a really cool song. the song isn't at all the same, but it kinda leads to this type of material. im not sure if you have ever heard of breaking benjamin, but their songs may very well interest you. thanks again, and i do hope we can get to be friends. -charlie-
