I'm waking up in night terrors
Can't stop the future
Keeps pushing me ahead
I feel the weight of the world crushing down on me
And time seems so linear
Decisions seem so absolute

Yeah it's a harsh realm
Yeah it's a harsh realm
Don't abandon me
Don't abandon me

There's a million things to get done today
I can't calm down, I can't think straight
You give a little bit of time everyone you meet
And what do you say for yourself?
How much money do you need
To give yourself a sense of security?

    I think she wrote this song right before, or right after she started coming out as laura.
    She has reached the inevitable moment where she can't hide from herself any longer. A tipping point in her struggle with her gender identity. The turmoil. The resignation. The fear of acceptance. It's all there.

    I too have a special resonance with this song.

    I feel as though I have a special resonance with this song. It is as though another conscious is directing him, showing what is to come and it is his relation and empathic thought about the other being in this equation that brings to mind does it leave time for itself. Then relating it too how the corruption and stagnation of man is due to the heavy handed religions and thought processes.
