Can you cut a window out of the fog?
Or a door into the ocean
Is there any way to escape once you are set aflame?
I try but it is pain and confusion I find
Shadows assail me yet they strike with fists of steel
I find the common thread, and it was me
How then to escape the blame
How to establish what I know to be true
They are the flame, the fog the pain
And yet as I, engulfed in the mist
Struggle to find what is me, I am engulfed
Swallowed whole by a thing I did not want
A choice I never made
Left to follow the sound of the horn
Blown to guide the way past shoals and reefs
No door to open, no window
The only way out is through
