You Lost Your Mind Today

You Lost Your Mind Today

 

I watched you lose your mind today

I watched it slip away

Out of the gleaming light

Into the murky gray

 

I wonder if it’s painful

Sitting in the dark

If the pounding in your head

Matches the pounding of your heart

 

Will I ever see again

The girl I loved so well

Who whispered in the quiet

Her dreams before she fell

 

Into this state of madness

Into this state of lies

No one is out to get you

All who care for you aren’t spies

 

We wade into the water

Wishing not to let you drown

Fearing we may be lost with you

Pulled and shackled to the ground

 

I watched you lose your mind today

I watched you lose it all

Trying so hard just to catch you

Trying not to let you fall
