Nothing here but fear's roots.
Stumbling to my knees,
My strength has failed, my path is lost
I'm groping through these trees

I thought I'd found an exit
From this forest of delusion
But the screaming trees confused me
And my freedom was illusion

Chorus
And when I woke
the jailor spoke
Said today's the day you're leaving
But when I saw
the jailhouse door
He said Sonny you're still dreaming

I built the walls and locked the doors
So my dreams have no way out.
So is this a real prison
If the walls are made of doubt?

Chorus

    Really cool. I've been working on my Goth band drabble story again and I've been writing song lyrics for the bands (There's a battle of the bands in the story so there are three bands I'm having to write song lyrics for) and this would fit right in with that.

    Thanks both :) I liked the walls of doubt, too, Aishling.
    I was thinking about your Goth drabbles earlier - glad to know they're still in the pipeline Christopher :)

    Thanks, Drew. I'm working on it but it's very complicated as there's a lot to keep up with. Don't know at what point I'll be able to start posting it.

    Good luck mate, just don't rush it - even though I want to read it, like, Now! But seriously I reckon it's a great idea, so go for it. If Jake is anything to go by, it'll be awesome :)

    Thanks, Drew. I've been working on and off on the new Jake story too. I don't seem to have enough time lately to devote to any of it, though.

    omg I tried two series at the same time a while ago and it was really hard work. It's true though, real life has a habit of getting in the way of the important stuff lol. It'll come though, I'm sure :)

    Yeah, I'm still trying to work out the new Jake story, but I had the beginning and I knew if I didn't go ahead and write it I would forget it. So I haven't been working a whole lot on it.

    No rush mate, just do it when you can. You've got some interesting storylines coming up, I can see :)
