Paradiseif only we could float away,
up, up and away to a new place
and start all over again
leaving all this chaos and confusion behind;

every night i close my eyes and
try to forget the life as it is
meaningless, void, confused and
stuck in a race that no one wins;

me versus the world,
fighting for what is not worth fighting for,
through chaos, underneath a stormy cloud,
for happiness etched only in paper;

so little time, so much to do,
walking on a tightrope (with the devil waiting to grab you) that sways with each step,
its a battle of survival, a battle of wits
and a battle to find happiness;

so every night i close my eyes,
try to forget the life i am living
and drift off to a paradise,
a Paradise of dreams!
