Enlist Me.

Vague recollections
Lost nights, no sleep
Day dreams become
Dusks cyclic creep
Slip back into darkness
Once and again
Debase the promise
That escorts the end

Each episode
A mislaid chance
To confront the devil
Decline his dance

Let me go, leave me be
Let me rise, set me free
I am weary, dismal, empty 
So far down
Emancipate me

An ascent of light
The dawn maid rises
Breaks a broken day
Upon hazy horizons
Draw, tight the blinds
So turn your eyes
To how many moons
Have fled the sky

Each episode
A mislaid chance
To confront the devil
Decline his dance

Let me go, leave me be
Let me rise, set me free
I am weary, dismal, empty
So far down
Emancipate me

Melting mornings
That came at night
Overlooked moments
Moon bright, sun light
Did rise and settle
And fall away
One wide eyed week
Befell a single day
Time misspent
On soul sacrifice
Not for worth
But for a price

Each episode
A mislaid chance
To confront the devil
Decline his dance

Let me go, leave me be
Let me rise, set me free
I am weary, dismal, empty
So far down
Emancipate me
