I. Reflection Cunning, Baffling, Powerful Beaten to a pulp Vigorous, Irresistabel Sick and tired and laid low Dominating, Invisible Black-out, loss of control Overwhelming, Unquenchable I'm powerless, have to let go I can't escape it It leaves me frail and worn Can no longer take it Senses tattered and torn Hopeless surrender Obsession's got me beat Losing the will to live Admitting complete defeat Fatal Descent Spinning around I've gone too far To turn back around Desperate attempt Stop the progression At any length Lift this obsession Crawling to my glass prison A place where no one knows My secret lonely world begins So much safer here A place where I can go To forget about my daily sins Life here in my glass prison A place I once called home Fall in nocturnal bliss again Chasing a long lost friend I no longer can control Just waiting for this hopelessness to end II. Restoration Run - fast from the wreckage of the past A shattered glass prison far behind me Fight - past walking through the ashes A distant oasis before me Cry - Desperate crawling on my knees Begging God to please stop the insanity Help me - trying to believe Stop wallowing in my self-pity "We've been waiting for you my friend The writing's been on the wall All it takes is a little faith You know you're the same as us all." Help me - I can't break out of this prison all alone Save me - I'm drowning and I'm hopeless on my own Heal me - I can't restore my sanity alone Enter the door Desperate Fighting no more Help me restore To my sanity At this temple of hope I need to learn Teach me how Sorrow to burn Help me return To humanity I'll be fearless and thorough To enter this temple of hope Believe Transcend the pain Living the life Humility Opened my eyes This new odyssey Of rigorous honesty Serenity I never knew Soundness of mind Helped me to find Courage to change All the things that I can "We'll help you perform this miracle But you must set your past free You dug this hole, but you can't bury your soul Open your mind and you will see" Help me - I can't break out this prison all alone Save me - I'm drowning and I'l hopeless on my own Heal me - I can't restore my sanity alone III. Revelation Way off in the distance I saw a door I tried to open I tried forcing with all of my will and still The door wouldn't open Unable to trust in my faith I turned and walked away I looked around, felt a chill in the air Took my will and turned it over The glass prison that once held me is now gone A long lost fortress Armed only with liberty And the key of my willingness Fell down on my knees and prayed "Thy will be done" I turned around, saw a light shining through The door was wide open
