I close my eyes

I close my eyes and start to slip away
Dreaming of places that I've never been
Lost in a world that's inside of me
Traveling through time, to escape a past
that forever taunts me.
Shadows pass by me from a place that I shouldn't have been.
Shots ring out and I see the dead, blood on my hands oh how can that have been. My heart pounds I'm on the run again, I look in a mirror and a soldier stares back at me. I ask, who are you? But he laughs back at me, tears in my eyes bring to reality. I close my eyes and slip away again.
