Fleeting

You lie in your bed
And you cant sleep, it’s frightening
You hear a voice and you think
Dear god what am I becoming?

You leave the house quite basely
And you can’t believe what’s waiting
You slide the door closed gently
And compose yourself so slightly

You move so quickly
Your thoughts are rushing
Your heart is pounding
You’re spirit drowning

And ooooo you’re changing
Now you’re everything you thought you’d never be
You’re racing time on the other side of good but you don’t see
Nothing is forever, but this is everything to me

The cold air tingles your face
You find you’ve quickened your pace
Your body’s numb, your mind is fried
but still you have a thousand alibis

You slip into the covers
And lie awake so freely
You search your conscience deeply
But your beliefs they seem so fleeting

And ooooo you’re changing
Now you’re everything you thought you’d never be
You’re racing time on the other side of good but you don’t see
Nothing is forever, but this is everything to me

Now you’re crying out
You’re giving In
You feel a rush under your skin
You can’t give up
Youre blacking out
Who will ever help you now?

The stillness moves with all thats nestled
Your fears, your lies, your sins so gentle
Now you’re settled but you just can’t wait for this to pass,
embrace the pain and hope it lasts
