my gavel hand lyrics – enchant

[music – d. ott / lyrics – t. leonard]

running blind and out of breath
but in the wrong direction
i don’t recall or recognize
my own reflection

locked myself in a cell i can’t breach
my key to sovereignty lies just out of reach
can’t set myself free:

can’t seem to keep down my last meal
can’t turn back the hand i deal
feel like i’m caught in foreign land
exiled by my gavel hand

a rat in a cage
i’m spinning the wheel
but getting nowhere
the gallows — my stage
i’m seen by all
performing to no one

this could have been my finest day
a drug that expends me; the price that i pay
can’t throw it away:

can’t seem to keep down my last meal
can’t turn back the hand i deal
feel like i’m caught in foreign land
exiled by my gavel hand

the cage that i’m in is formed
from my own design:
no way out that i can tell
stay here forever trapped
inside my own mind:
i know every corner so well

and i fear that when i finally find the will
the atrophy will keep me lying still

but i’m tired of the darkness
and i’m tired of the smell
but i’m torn; i don’t know anything else
and i’m tired of the nighttime
and i long for the day
but i’m torn; i don’t know another way

running blind, out of breath
spinning the wheel
but getting nowhere:
