Circles In My Mind
Lost in an empty field
Pacing on a gravel track
Trapped by a fallen branch I try to yield
There's no trail leading back
No one can hear the screams I keep concealed
It’s night with no escape to find
I’ve spent all my time running circles in my mind
Days nights seasons go by
I’m stuck left on my own
To wander around lost til I die
Sometimes I wonder why I try
To find to path
When I know I’ll still be alone
It’s quite empty here
I think I’ve gotten blind
Cuz my whole life I’ve been
Running circles in my mind
When will the earthquake come?
To shake and break this brittle ground
Is someone out there looking?
To make sure I am found
And what if I just give it up and lay here
Will anything compensate for the wasted years?
As the circle closes in
And the air's getting thin
It’s time to leave this field
Sorry to those i left behind
But all that I did, was run circles in my mind
