Lost my freedom
All around me, only darkness
How can I get out of this mess
That which I got into in my consciousness
That which had rendered me tameless
It feels like am drowning
Water, water around me, surrounding
Can’t breathe, can’t talk, its stuffing
I can’t even resort to running or flying
No one can even hear me shouting
Even though my mouth is open and yelling
Out loud, wails of danger and distress
Where is my savior, coming at the help of his Mistress?
Shall I ever see light at the end of the tunnel?
Shall I ever be the carefree damsel?
The one so happy in the comforting security
Of her very own liberty
