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
