lyrics

Nightmares

All I wanted was to be
Heard over the crowd
But I did not recognize
My voice that loud

Wishes come true with lies

How can I rest when I must keep spinning
To stay upright
And is the best I can hope for
Nightmares to fill my mind?

I embody powerlessness: surprise, it saps my confidence
Putting hopeless faith in the divine in the mundane
Listen to everything at once -- you will know why I am going mad
Crossed by my imagination -- my future darkly envisioned

Now I am a cold and lonely queen
Ruler of all I see
Tired of my looking glass
I climb the highest tree
But I can’t take my eyes off the moon, still above me, distant
Maybe she can teach how to balance madness and strength
