Escaping the Unknown

When I go to sleep from now on
I won't dream of you at all
I was kept so sick and weak
And I cannot obey your call

Take a look around you now
And see that I'm no longer there
Can you say in honesty
That somehow, I'm not being fair?

Once I wished you by my side
To give me comfort when I cried
But for me you're not the one
My love for you has died

So much lies ahead for me
So much that I cannot see
I must release myself from you
In order to be free

Every day that I'm alone
Brings me closer to my home
A place where I belong to
Escaping the unknown

I know that you'd rather keep me
Bound in chains upon the floor
But I have another plan
I won't live this life anymore

You can say that no one else
Will care for me like you have done
But I want to live alone
For I do not need anyone

Once I wished you by my side
To give me comfort when I cried
But for me you're not the one
My love for you has died

So much lies ahead for me
So much that I cannot see
I must release myself from you
In order to be free

Every day that I'm alone
Brings me closer to my home
A place where I belong to
Escaping the unknown

And if you look with saddened eyes upon me
You have to realize
I need to do this for myself
Into the heavens watch me rise
