THE EMBERS OF DEPRESSION

DEPRESSION OVERCOMES ME, AND THE DAYS ARE ALL ALIKE,
EAT I MUST AND SLEEP I WILL, AND WOULD THAT NIGHT WERE HERE.
BUT AH, TO LIE AWAKE AND HEAR THE SLOW HOURS STRIKE,
WOULD THAT IT WERE DAY AGAIN WITH TWILIGHT NEAR.

DEPRESSION OVERCOMES ME, AND I DONíT KNOW WHAT TO DO.
THIS OR WHAT YOU WILL IS ALL THE SAME TO ME,
BUT ALL THE THINGS THAT I BEGIN I LEAVE BEFORE IíM THROUGH.
THERE IS LITTLE USE IN ANYTHING, AS FAR AS I CAN SEE.

DEPRESSION OVERCOMES ME AND THE NEIGHBOURS KNOCK AND BORROW,
AND LIFE GOES ON FOREVER LIKE THE GNAWING OF A MOUSE.
AND TOMORROW, AND TOMORROW, AND TOMORROW.
THEREíS THIS LITTLE VILLAGE, AND THIS LITTLE HOUSE.

DEPRESSION OVERCOMES ME, AND IíM UNABLE TO RELATE,
AND PEOPLE GO AND DO AND CHOOSE I CANNOT PLAY MY ROLE.
BUT STAY AND TOIL WITHIN MY MIND THE PRISON I CREATE,
THERE MUST BE FREEDOM SOMEWHERE, BECAUSE LOVE WAS IN MY SOUL.

DEPRESSION OVERCOMES ME, AND I FEAR IíLL SUFFOCATE,
I TRY TO RUN BUT LEGS OF LEAD OBSTRUCT MY ROUTE AHEAD,
LIKE A GIANT TSUNAMI IT COMES TO SIGN MY FATE,
AND FREE MY TORTURED BODY, BY SEEING I AM DEAD.
HAS LIFE GONE AND LEFT ME? HAS THE PHOENIX FLOWN?
