I feel it in my spirit,

My humanity slipping away

The walls are closing around me

They get closer everyday

I’m hanging on to my spirit

As it desperately pulls away

Darkness closes around me

As my goodness fades away.

Alone on a dusty highway,

I sit here by myself

Hoping the light will find me

Despite the cards I’ve been dealt

Cracking earth beneath me,

My spirit cannot be found

Burning skies above me,

I feel the heat rising now

Waiting for an answer

For the weight of all my sins

Darkness closes around me

My life has done me in.

I’ve finally found my spirit

It hides in the darkest place

I pray the redeemer will find me,

But I’m afraid it might be too late.
