deserts lyrics – diabolical

there’s a desert within me, growing bigger every day
i keep drifting further away, from what used to be my
life
every night i try to, tell myself that it’s no use
but something makes me keep hunting, hunting myself

a hopeless dream of joy, it’s something i can’t control

the silhouette is too unreal, and the distance is way too
great
the calm oasis – the valley of joy, a place i know i’ll
never reach
so every night i try to, replace my agony with strength
but something makes me keep stabbing, stabbing myself

(i know i have been here before, but i never thought i
would return
to these deserts of desolation, someone, please take me
away from here)
