Unlock the door

Stuck in a dream
Same old theme
No way out
Consumed by doubt

This isn’t real
Unable to feel
It’s all in my head
Am I alive or dead?

Thoughts that ramble
Debts to gamble
A shipwrecked soul
Unable to pay the toll

Floating to the sky
Believing the lie
Sinking in the dirt
Feeling the hurt

Trapped in this cage
With all of my rage
Unlock the door
And let me soar

Held captive by thoughts
Loose ends tied in knots
Set me free, set me free
It’s all I ever needed to be

The disease has no cure
I can’t do another tour
Free me from this curse
Before it gets any worse.
