A Phantom's Lament

I am awake but I cannot think
I'm simply walking through this canyon deep
My heart may beat, my limbs may move
But the life I live is not true
When I laugh, I feel no joy
Smiles I give are just a ploy
To draw you in and make you think
That this life I live is not a dream
My endless wandering in the night
Through these dreamscapes and minds so bright
Lures you in to walk beside
Me in this tenebrous cycle of deadly lies
