This velvet darkness is blinding my eyes
From seeing the path to where I’ve been.
I sense the ground I stand on is nothing but a lie,
But will I ever see again?

Please ask me if there’s anything wrong.
Some false assurance that another cares.
Isolation gives me the will to learn and grow.
Learning gives me the will to isolate myself.

Still some suspicion of a life yet lived...

This velvet darkness is blinding my eyes
From seeing the path to where I’ve been.
I fear the ground I stand on is nothing but a lie,
But will I ever see again?

Somewhere along the arrow, I feel out of place,
Lost sight of the breadcrumbs I laid to get back
I used to dream that I could my life.
Now I have nightmares that this life is not my own.

This velvet darkness is blinding my eyes
From seeing the path to where I’ve been.
I sense the ground I stand on is nothing but a lie,
But will I ever see again? Again?

Your eyes will never see the sun.
