Mental…

Tell me you can you hear it…
That you can hear the noise…

Just beneath life’s surface…
Just loud enough to annoy…

It’s been there for hours…
It’s been there for days…

Now I come to think of it…
It has been there always…

For as long as I remember…
An eerie underlying sound…

Like a dim distant drummer…
Marching round and round…

And now it’s getting louder…
It beats in time with my heart…

I hear it though the daytime…
It haunts me in the dark…

And leaves me quietly longing…
For the vodkas anaesthetic…

That numbs and distracts…
Stopping me feeling pathetic…

As it flows through my body…
And envelopes my broken soul…

Damaged by the demons…
Who’ve assumed full control…

Bringing a sense of foreboding…
Like the predicted end is nigh…

By an army of destroyers…
Descending from upon high…

Please… tell me you can hear them…
And that I’m not fucking insane…

I cannot be the only one…
Do you hear it through the rain…

And hear it in the darkness…
Within recurring nightmare dreams…

Where “THEY” control the images…
Designed to make us scream…

Please tell me how to ease it…
And how to end all the sadness…

Because it’s stabbing at my head…
Injecting my mind with madness…
