It it all made up, is it natural to mankind, was the monster that I saw really just a state of mind?

Was I wrong all along, was instinct fooling me, could it be that there's no cure because there is no disease?

What if I was right, in everyone the monster dwells? Then sedation is preferable to living in this hell

Now I can no longer see, in this fading light, the reason that I thought it worth putting up a fight

You could give up easily, if you could just see, then you would just surrender

Take the pressure off of me, put me back to sleep, I could just surrender

You may think you're only one and you are freedom's only son, but suddenly it means you are alone

When the wasteland is your home it seems so hard to carry on when you could just surrender

Taking impermanence into account, you became lost in the shadow of doubt

Admit to yourself that the fire is dead, stop running from something that's all in your head

Look to the blind when no-one can see, and follow the dead back into the dream

How the fuck can I alone know better than the rest, and how can I justify this self-righteous unrest?

Tell me how I can oppose that which I do not know, pretentious and arrogant, and put on all for show

Reading far too much into what was never there, I came up with a monster as a reason for despair

Is this a disease draining my mental health, or is it simply natural to second-guess myself?
