I Want to Escape

Feeling overwhelmed I wanted to escape
Turn my back and close my eyes
Just for a little while
But how do you close your eyes on yourself
When behind them lay memories
Memories of pain that have not lost their sting
And memories of sorrow that still chill your blood

When the one thing you want is to escape yourself
And you know that can never be done
Where do you turn to
And how do you run
To find a land of simplicity and peace
Even just for a little while

When all around you
Things are falling apart and changing
And the rocks you believed in
Are crumbling away
What can you trust
Who can you hold on to
How do you not crumble yourself

When all I want is to escape
To feel at ease for a little while
How do I resolve such tensions
As those which have conquered my mind
