Chapter One: Eyelids
"Stuck on autopilot - I must be dreaming with eyelids wide open, paralyzed and broken.
All I see is the devil on my shoulder - he chills me to the bone and sneaks his way in through my skull to make me feel all alone.
Here I am like the prodigal son of man - I'm throwing fists left and right. I'm illogical.
I can't coexist with being lost, so I'll crush you with the flick of a wrist. I'll crash down and reign fire.
If sleep is giving, I'm giving up. Letting go. He speaks his dialect - I can't connect. It's killing us. At least it's scaring me to death.
These fade apparitions. The ones that have been keeping you from yourself.
They are the separation between your thoughts and your stare.
It feels like someone else is looking at me through your eyes.
Stillness, my love. Oh darling, am I dreaming? I feel the night is holding you from me.
Let me tear you from fear's snares and hold you again. I'll reach in and steal you from these dreams if I have to. I'll reach in."
