Holding Still for As Long As Possible

Music & Lyrics by J. Cappadocia

Can you hear my
Can you feel my
Silent screaming in the night?

Can you see me
Can you sense me
Holding still until daylight?

Holding still for as long as possible,
Heart racing and skin alight,
Consuming fire of a fear combustible

Wide awake to this wild banality
Shadows dance, night breathes alive
Unending dream of a strained reality
Trying hard to think of nothing at all

Blankly stare in the dark brutality
Eyes widen and scream with fright
A panicked sigh and a fierce finality

Holding still for as long as possible
Mind racing and eyes alight
Consuming fire of a fear combustible

Grasping on to a thread of sanity
Wind howls, night screams alive
Restless hope of eventuality
Trying hard to dream of nothing at all

Desperate prayer to a cruel depravity
Heart pounding and bursts with fright
A silent cry and a lie destructible
