I hide, as the fiction eclipses my life
In trying times, I always find solace when I fantasize

Eyes fixed on the flickering screen,
To shut out this dull reality
Dark days, I can overlook
Swimming through the ink on the pages of a book

I always thought there’d be something more
Than this Tragically Human State
But I’ve realized, that if my body’s just a vessel then I’ll cast it away

Half alive, trapped inside

I’ll let the fiction in to shut the sadness out,
And I’ll replace this life with something more profound

I’ll let the fiction in to shut the boredom out,
And I will chase this lie beyond the slightest doubt

I’ll keep this lie alive until the night runs out
And I will run away until my legs give out.
