Dissociation is (not) fun. (written in like November 2015)

lyrics

I might appear to sit across from you
But I'm not actually here
The red moon has taken me away
(And left an empty shell)
Don't know why it has come back again
But it's left me very uncertain
Of whether I should just go or stay
(Neither suits me well)

Doubt arrests my mind again
(These doubts are arresting...)
Watch my face fade away
(Come on and, come on and)
Second guess my disarray
(Come on and second guess my...)
Watch my face fade away

(It's just not enough / Is this enough?)

I was not prepared
For your unwelcome visit
I was quite comfortable with my black skies
(You show up when you please)
But I know that there is little I can do to stop you
From making your blood moon arise
(You bring me to my knees!)

Doubt arrests my mind again
(These doubts are arresting...)
Watch my face fade away
(Come on and, come on and)
Second guess my disarray
(Come on and second guess my...)
Watch my face fade away
(Here it comes now...)

The feeling arrives when the red moon arises
(Is any of this really happening?)
And I just can't escape
(Am I being led astray?)
The source of my fright and my lack of foresight
My clouded thoughts, my doubtful heart
The home of despair in this land of nightmares
And I can not ESCAPE

If it's red, it's dead.
I'm living in my head.
