Staring down into the darkness,
the emptiness of death.
I consider what it would be
like to take my last breath.
In the black I met the devil,
it turns out he was me.
The eyes were mine, with hate, and pain
swirling, easy to see.
Then, I was pulled back out of the storm,
into the light of will...
In the light I met god and she
was me, the peace... Tranquil...
So now I'm here in the middle...
Trying to find the way.
But the way out is a hard thing
for me to find these days.
