There is a torrid place where madness dwells,
Somewhere between bright heavens and dark hells,
Where wondering souls their tortured selves meet,
And hollowed-out-beings smile, wave and greet.
In this dried out twilight of no return,
I’ll hunt for you though the blasted fires burn,
Bring you back with deepest love from my soul,
Hold you tight, share a new way to go.
Believe in yourself, your feeling is right,
Hold onto your soul with all of your might,
When shadows come creeping into your mind,
Dispel them with thoughts of most loving kind.
When madness spreads then the world will all see
The smallest of gaps between you and me.
