The Key

stuck inside this prison
the walls slowly closing in
desperately searching for the key
there has to be a way
to break out of this place
some way to get set free

so you grab the bottle
you pick up the needle
pop the pills scattered around
a temporary escape
from the endless nightmare
that’s slowly dragging you down

and you soar through utopia
far away from your mind
far away from your tormented fate
while on the ground
your body lays frozen

locked in a catatonic state
but all too soon
you fall back to earth
back into your ever shrinking cell
realizing that this utopia
wasn’t the key to your freedom
but the entrance to your own living
