No One is Coming

No One is Coming

No one is coming
Can you hear the silence enclose around you?
The ticking of the clock
as time passes by
you are waiting
waiting
waiting for that night in shiny armor
someone to take your hand and make it all right

no one is coming
Can you feel the cold numbness spreading like fire over your skin?
surrounding you in your own darkness
as deeper and deeper you go
you are waiting
waiting
waiting for that one who will make everything happy again

Someone comes but you are not happy
they try to make you laugh and smile
but it does not work

No one is coming
Can you see your demons now swimming in your mind?
fighting and clawing at your brain
as you hold your head and sink lower
you are waiting
waiting
Waiting for someone to take your hand and make it alright

Someone comes but everything is the same
everything is not alright
just more of the same

No one is coming
can you smell the damp muddy air fill as it fills your lungs?
Breathing slow and ragged
as you find strength to stand
you are waiting
waiting
waiting for someone to pick up your baggage and lend you a hand

Someone comes and tries lifting your bags
they lighten the load
but it is too heavy for them to carry

No one is coming
can you taste the sweat on your lips?
inching your way up the mountain
as each step become more steady and confident
you are waiting
waiting
waiting for directions, a sign or someone to help you

Someone comes
they walk beside you
they offer only their ear

No one is coming
Can you notice your thoughts move in slow-motion?
talking your way through the darkness
as one listens by your side
You are waiting
waiting
waiting for someone to control your brains incessant chatter

No one is coming
Can you see that someone is you?
waiting for permission to slay the dragons
as you climb from the depths of your mind
You are wading
wading
wading through your thoughts to find happiness within
