I’m up at dawn I feel reborn
I’m damned if I know why
My fear has gone I feel alive and strong
I could jump and touch the sky.
I went to bed wishing I was dead
I was sick of all the pain
Darkness swarmed inside my head
Driving me insane.
I tried to work out why my life
Had been in such a mess
How could I sink so low so ashamed
Isolated, tormented depressed.
The funny thing is I can’t remember
Exactly when it started
I only know it was around the time
My ego and consciousness parted.
