In Solitude

by Adam Johnston

In Solitude 04:48
Time just seems to slip away Seconds moving faster every day Oceans rise and fall, Faint, salvation's lonely call. One more sentence passed, hope survives until the last. Faces fade away, Leaving only grey. Memories left behind, Consciousness now undefined In solitude and sadness, your voice, it calls me home. This silence leaves me meaningless, Don't leave me here alone. Waves of sound and light, lost, perceptions taking flight. Peace in chaos throng; safe at last where I belong
Flame 05:19
I’m moving through this life, On the edge a knife, With no escape, With no way out of the hell I’m going through. This is not the end, My wounds begin to mend, Some day soon I will live again and I’ll break out of these chains No matter what I do, You used to see me through, I don’t know what to do, Inside I burn for you I burn for you, The flame inside, That keeps me alive, I burn for you Take my life from in my chest, Dismember me, lay me to rest.
Glass 03:47
Awakening, Once again I gaze into myself. Unsure of what i’ll find, Reflection staring back. Unconscious fading fast, Closing in at last, My only chance to find the words to, Say goodbye to you. Hollow shadows light my way, Echoed whispers lead me out of yesterday. Press your lips to the glass, Hold onto the memories of a life thats passed. My feelings still remain, Though you and I may never meet again.
Horizon 03:26
Horizon fades away. Storm clouds gather day by day. Your eyes tell me more than you can say I dreamed everything would melt away Forgotten we return to yesterday Horizon fades away
Am I the only person here? The only one to see things clear Masks are now all that I see, Now you’ve taken mine from me Round and round, everyone. All they do is dance, they’re done. Hidden for eternity, Why won’t you show your face to me? Things just aren’t the same All this hurts my brain. It finds the fear inside, Fuelled by your disguise. You’re hiding in plain sight Your Smile in place all night But I know inside you scream You’re writing your own dream Everyone’s dancing No-one is living Hiding behind lies, Nothing survives. What do we gain From such illusion, Everyone dances The Masquerade of Life I know this can’t last long, Your life will all go wrong. You keep up this charade, Dance the at the masquerade. I only wish I knew, Just how to break through, Throw away your mask and, Be with you at last.
Shivers 01:27
Emotions leading you astray, Confessions seal your heart away, Your time is spent; won't get it back, A lifetime lost in one solemn act. Hate blurs the light to grey, Love blurs the dark to grey, Save yourself before you fade away Devotion sends you on this path Obsession calls your soul to task Your hands they shake; anticipate, A future gone; Forever changed.
