Duress

And when the dawn begins to creep 
Sunlight finds you in a heap 
And how you wish that you could sleep 
Forget the lies that you’ve been told 
You think you’re settin’ free your soul
But you’re really gettin’ old 
You’ve dreamt of divin’ in the sea 
Your outstretched arms in front of me 
And how you wished that you could breathe 
In the grip of ecstasy 
When the shadows follow me 
And the night won’t set me free 
You wish someone could love you less 
Longing for that one caress 
I see you sink under Duress 
And when you wanna kill it dead 
You let it throttle you instead
