What if perceptions were only deceptions?
A blanket of optical comfort, this place,
A world imagined, a reality fashioned
Clues to conclude a curious case

A look in the mirror so suddenly a fear you're
Not something you thought you once were
A startling conclusion, a wall of illusion
You're trying to escape the spell you've been under. . .

Theres nothing to wake up to now
You're stuck like a rat in a cage
Reality just wont allow
For you to turn the page

In glorious endeavor, you contemplate "forever",
The colors and the sounds such a beautiful display.
You drink up, you drop out, but you'll find nothing without
A deeper understanding, and so you drift away

Your family and your friends say your happiness depends
Upon the life that you lead.
But how could they have known
You wish to break these chains so that you might be freed

Theres nothing to wake up to now
You're stuck like a rat in a cage
Reality just wont allow
For you to turn the page

Spiral downward, spiral downward...

I like it
They repulse me
This light will blind
And what will I find?

I'll tell you the truth when I come back down
And you won't like it, you won't make a sound
Because you'll never be ready to hear

You'll drive me back up like I was before
You'll close the blinds and you'll lock the door
Because you won't have a word I say

Theres nothing to wake up to now
You're stuck like a rat in a cage
Reality just wont allow
For you to turn the page
