downfall lyrics – compos mentis

whirling through claustrophobic tunnels
thrown from side to side, relentlessly
i’m surrounded by viscous walls
that reach out for me

i flee with broken wings
through the darkness of eternity
shadows of memories repressed long ago
pierce my thready mind

a flight from myself
a flight in myself

i flee with broken wings
through realms of forgotten nightmares
raped by the deepest fractions of my mind
it leaves me bleeding

a flight from myself
a flight in myself

but the fear abates
as my hope fades away
every feeling subsides
in line with the advance of nothingness
