about

Each attempt to escape from your own adult self to the days of adolescence brings you back to that Y-fork in the road where you chose the path which has led you to what and where you are today. Whatever would have happened if you had gone the other way…

lyrics

To the demon within I unleashed
I’ve fallen prey now I scream
Only to see if it can be scared
Or make sure that I can be heard

Meanwhile on the big outside
The boy I used to be walks by
And stops for quick peek inside
To behold such a terrible sight

As if trying to fight some invisible force
His current self now down on all fours
Occasionally lifting his hands in the air
His face distorted in shock and despair

Hear me, now save me
Lead me through high seas to safety
With clouds beneath my feet
You know me, don’t let me be deceived

“Here is the key to unlock the door”,
A voice penetrates right through the wall,
“I’ll be your guide from wrong into right,
Show you the way back, now follow the light”

And the demon within I had unleashed
So helpless after the miserable defeat
Lies smashed and torn down on the ground
Its remains only darkness surrounds

So I greet the new day and drink a toast
To the past that’s my future
And to the boy
That I once was
