The Battle Rages Within


The land has grown dim
The battle rages within
It's fought for my soul
A most terrible toll
In silence it passes
The light it surpasses
My Sanity the prize
Of these darkened skies
A prize that's so dear
I'll lose it I fear
Hopeless it seems
It's taken my dreams
Onward it wages
Evermore it rages
The battle may end
My heart it will rend
But the war goes on
Ever on and on
Victory so dear
I'm losing I fear
Insanity ahead
I should stay in bed
Winning is out
I want to shout
But a draw maybe
It's all I can see
The fight never ends
No matter what it sends
The battle rages within
