I am awake
My eyes are open
The nightmare that has passed
Is nothing to the dangers ahead

The war of emotional terrorism
Threat level red
The pain of physical bludgeoning
Blood-stained shirt, scattered head

My only friends
Lie deep within
They say fight back
Torture is only temporary

Volos be one
He tells me
Fire your gun
Upon the thing that should not be

Nightmare comes alive
Amongst the inner war
Turmoil of a thousand soldiers
Suffering Shell Shock

The world is not my oyster
Nor is it my friend
Just try harder, it's fine in the end
And seize the fallen day

Water washes things anew
Just add lye to take the pain away.
