locked inside

By @Inko117

No. 002 locked inside

kept in this place, never to see daylight again

looking at the same concrete walls

passing by shadows of my memories back when

walking down these fading halls

thinking that it’s easier to pretend 

that i’m not what i used to be back then

there’s somewhere outside, where the tides are high

hearing the voices inside my head

there’s someone outside, that i didn’t mean to say goodbye

even though i’m still alive, at least i tried

locked inside, and i’m forever blind

the fading lights, a million shades of gray

nowhere to hide, a prison by my design

locked inside, the darkest mind

for the price i paid, until i fade away

my stolen lies, and it led to my demise

holding onto the same iron bars

the story written on the walls, keeping it as my disguise

echoing footsteps made by the prison guards

can’t you see the signs, just stay in line

but i guess we all mess up sometimes

there’s somewhere outside, where the tides are high

hearing the voices inside my head

there’s sometime outside, when i could see the sky

looking into the reflection of my own eyes

there’s someone outside, that i didn’t mean to say goodbye

even though i’m still alive, at least i tried

these chains are made

in a certain way

and as memories fade

in this place i’m locked away

locked inside, and i’m forever blind

the fading lights, a million shades of gray

nowhere to hide, a prison by my design

locked inside, the darkest mind

and it’s the price i paid, until i fade away
