Terminal

The night is growing colder and your body feels older than it should
And you’d pack up your brains and all that remains and escape if you could
You are a broken man dying in a house of black
What little hope you’ve had got taken last night
Too severed and weak to put up any fight
Caught in this terminal between life and death	

You’re mind is all torn and your body all worn and you’re too gone to think
Cold begins to blur and thoughts begin to slur and you’re starting to sink
The sky is blackened out, the clouds shattered about, reminesce of reality fade
Infinite space dissloves you from consciousness  and the trials of hell that you wade 
You’d just like to scream but so it does seem you still cannot speak
Remembering dreams you cannot redeem with a spirit  so weak
Caught in this terminal between life and death

Your brother is long dead and his ghost haunts your head 
Watching him crawl up your walls and into your bed
You’re starting to see that you really are alone
This feeling of solitude has gradually grown
You’re crying out your blood and you’re coughing up mud 
Your tears turn to scud and your mind begins to flood
Caught in this terminal between life and death 

Sometimes you cannot take what you’ve become
But the misery and suffering cannot be undone
No matter where you run you will simply not be alone
Your entity follows you to every place you call home
Drawing you closer and closer to remind you that you’re still undeserving
Whispering memories of the youth and happiness you've been long preserving
Caught in this terminal between life and death

(Stuck inside the water shed next to the river in the old painting hanging in the coffee shop downtown)
You find yourself looking out of a picture frame
Fantasizing about life if you weren't the same
Awaiting your judgement day
Awaiting to leave the grey
Awaiting your lost world to take you
Remembering the dreams you've slept through
Awaiting your judgement day
Awaiting to leave the grey
Awaiting your lost dreams  to wake you
Caught in this terminal between life and death
