Close your eyes and then tell me,

What inside there, do you see ?

Is it darkness or is there light,

Is it day or is it night ?

Listen closely with open ears,

what inside there do you hear ?

Total silence or is there sound,

Words of wisdom, or only questions found.

Tell me now, what do you feel,

is it fake or is it real ?

Is it joy or is it pain,

Is there sunshine or pouring rain ?

Is each day different

or are they all the same ?

Are you young but feeling old,

When it’s warm do you still feel cold.

Are you feeling numb and don’t really know,

Which way, which way, which way to go.

Do you see yourself as being strong,
or do you feel like something’s always wrong ?

And have you felt like this for so very long,
that you’ve lost your will to carry on.

What do you see or do you care,

When into the reflection of the mirror you stare.

Do you recognize the person that’s standing there,

Or are you lost inside some where ?

Can you hear a distant voice that calls,

From somewhere back behind those walls.

Built by you over years gone by,

A place where you could run and hide,
in troubled, troubled, troubled times.

Are you afraid of what you’ll find,

If you take a look down deep inside ?

Close your eyes what do you see,

Is it who you used to be,
waiting there for you to set him free.
