Awakening

Kicking habits I never knew I had
Becoming black, then blue and finally red
I know I should be praying like mad
But god lives, and I’m dead

Now I finally see
I was never free
A slave of my own making
Time I should be awakening

Alive, but with a cold soul inside
Busily living, but failing to abide
Digging up dirt, for the diamonds to find
Back bent, eyes growing blind

Now I finally see
I was never free
A slave of my own making
Time I should be awaking

The way she made you
Come and undone
A clay figure in her hands
Totally at her command
These images that hunt your brain
Leave you with only pain
These thoughts you should not entertain

Now that I’m free
It’s still so hard to see
The water in which I swim
The world that I’m in

Now that I finally see
It was always up to me
Open my eyes and awake
Jump into the lake
