A static wall is in my mind
For reasons I cannot define
This blurred out wall
Hides what I seek
For all I know it could be anything
What I wish to be
My very meaning
Through these clouded doors I see
My life
My dreams
All unfolding
This haze in my mind
Is blocking what I could see
All that I have wished
All that I have dreamed
All behind this one strange screen
Though this wall I need to break 
Seems so far out of reach
I close my eyes and try to think
"But this is me, these are my dreams but why oh why must they hide from me?"
This wall is so close
Yet lost in this haze
Just please. 
Please come to me
Please do not flee
Don’t go through that screen
The one I cannot reach
The one shrouded in mystery
Let me be free
Free to my own dreams
Not hide and cry thinking of what could have been!
Let me clear my mind of this white noise
Its cries are just defining
I just want to live my life
Clear from its wails
Let me be whole
Let me be free
Just let me take hold
Of all my dreams
You had your chance
You had your own dreams
Now stop clogging my mind
With all your misery
Let me live free!
Let me write my own destiny!
Clear my mind
So I can find that peace inside
 Is not to hide
It is to find and define who you are
But how can that be achieved
If you keep my dreams under lock and key
Just release your hold
Just please believe
I don’t need all your memories
Let me walk without leash
Through any door I reach
Let me be myself and not thee
For even if you keep my dreams 
Under that locked blurred scream
I will find a way to get them free
I will.
Believe me
This soul is vivid 
And no cage will hold me
So you beware
 You static cling
For I am coming
And hell I shall bring.
