The Wise Man's Fear – Vitality lyrics

I’m so tired of sleeping
And sick-to-death of this illness
And each day I can feel as the stronghold of my mind slips out of focus away from these dreams
Heart beaten down, torn at the seams

This can’t be the end of everything that I’ve done
All the darkness in this world could never block out the sun
There’s no evil that surrounds us that can outweigh the good
Bound by the light lifted up from the ground where we stood

Vitality is gone from me
My apathy is a eulogy that reads, “Here lies a tragedy, a hollowed shell of what was me”

You’re a skeleton of your former self and I can see that you lack a spine

I fear there is no cure for this
Lethargy-wrapped narcotic bliss
No shock that can awaken me
No force to break this apathy

Wake me up, I’m far too dead to die
I can’t remember how long it’s been since I last saw sunlight
Wake me up, I’m far too dead to die
I can’t remember how long it’s been since I saw any light
