LEFT BEHIND

[2001]

So afraid to open your eyes
You know too well that which awaits you
Something undefined there in the halflight
The demon without
The demon inside to plague and torment you
Feeling so sure, feeling so uncertain that something is wrong
Everyone's gone and you have been left behind
Everyone left the demon inside

Do you still hear their laughter
So hard to describe
You never forget the faces that haunt you
Awake or asleep, I know you can't tell
Unable to sleep
Unable to fight
Unwilling to wake to open your eyes
to face your oppressor
Still you go on convinced it will end

Can you remember
a day when it was not, not like this?
Unsure of yourself, unsure of your thoughts
Unable to know if what you think is right or wrong
Still you go on convinced it will end
Like someone pushes a blade through your mind
There on the edge where no-one will find you
Still hearing them laugh
Is there no light at the end for you

Why is everything wrong?

Here I am
Here I am with these words
Trying to say something I can't
Something I can't tell you

Nothing is wrong
The demons they have left you
You were not left behind
You were not left behind
So open your eyes
So open your eyes

Unable to sleep
Unable to fight
Unwilling to wake
Please open your eyes
For here I stand
unable to tell you what I am trying to say

Nothing is wrong
Please open your eyes
Nothing is wrong
You were not left behind
