Slip Away

What do you want from me? I have nothing more to give.
Why can't you leave me alone, and just let me live?
It feels like unconscious delirium...bleeding under skin...
I constantly go numb, only to feel pain set in.
I'm always looking for something...always trying to see.
I scream and yell for answers, but no one hears my plea.
Friends I've lost, enemies I've gained.
I've shed more tears, than clouds have rained.
I'm lost in a sea of darkness, a soundless prison.
I can't find myself, nor the stars that have risen.
I'm yelling and calling, growing more blind.
I slipping and falling, losing my mind.
Reach out and save me, before I slip away.
Come out and save me, I stand on the fray.
Help me, I'm slipping..
Catch me, I'm tripping...
I'm slipping away..
