We don't Exist

Existing only in my mind
floating in my inner dreams
haunting, seeking, barely breathing
naked silence cold within 

Becoming part of my illusion
the best waste of useful time I know
And even turning back I find you
can’t escape this dream I’m sore 

The kind of things I’ve learned with you
from time to time come to forget
the purpose of my blissful insanity
when reason questions truth it’s dead 

And even though I count the days
I throw the cards I walk the maze
I feel the answers lost within
the very doors I’ve locked you in 

I can’t change what I’ve done
cigarettes smoked burn like the sun
And even though I hold you near
your coldest summer my darkest fear 

I won’t turn back I need to know
will the silence ever go?
never answer and i’ll know
we can die together so
