I'm chained by the cold embrace
Agitated breath
Obscuring what I see
And we can't believe
And we cannot see
That its so cold
That we're so

One more step and I cant make it
One more chance that I cant take

At every step
At every obstacle
Face to face, from all I have been hiding from
Dull colours comfort me

No judgement from the inside
The warm touch fracturing my clarity
An audience of cold stares
Piercing deeply
Through my back

At the edge of doubt
I feel I'm slipping
A creeping feeling is telling me
I've seen this wall before

Take these reflective faces
And try to push them away
I'm losing my grip
None of this is making any sense
The mark of the cold
Pressed to face

Sapped energy
Drained to freeze
Escape the warm fantasy

Don't stay
It's way too cramped up here

I have always had a problem
(Don't stay)
Reaching a conclusion
(Our conclusion)
I never know how to finish
(Is to finish)
