Asylum walls

All these noises
All these voices
How close are we all
To asylum walls

I curse and I cry
I crave and I call
Out to the shallow
To the demons and dreams in my shadow

Make it go away
Make it stay
This is living hell
This is me in a cell

Empty words
Hollow promises
Sickening
Shallow souls
Searching for the same thing

Where does it end
When we're already bent
Broken and numb
You took my sun
