Quicksand

I’ve stepped into shit
And I’ve sunk knee-deep
I’m trying to struggle free
But I’m stuck in this pit

Of quicksand that pulls me
Slowly towards its center
Like an abyss that holds you dearer
Than the darkness that you lit

You set fire to your heart
It burned a glowing red
You tried to put it out with water
But now you’re soaking wet

And the cold does not comfort
Nor does it soothe the pain
It will only numb you
So you’ll never feel again

But do you really need that?
Do you need anything at all?
No, I know you don’t
You just want and want and want.
