I Can't Escape

I have felt the darkness
The kind that seeps into your mind when you're alone.
The kind that makes tears come to your eyes and sadness to your heart.
It's the kind of darkness that can really tear you apart.
When this darkness is found it's hard to unsee
I saw it once, now it follows me.
If ever there was such a dark thing around
It would put you six feet in the ground.
It haunts me and hurts me
I can't escape
It turns my heart and mind away
I can't escape
It's really all in my head
I really can't escape.
