i look in the mirror and see the fear in my eyes
stranded for eternity in the corner of my demise
lost in the thoughts that yesterday left behind
i pray i will remember these illusions are not mine

although these illusions are reflections I see
I find these intrusions looking at me
how weary I get from this constant mindful battle
I turn it to You to end the clatter and rattle

delusions of dark, appearing as light
help me to know which vision is right
the love that i seek in You and in me
still hidden by lies, oft all i can see

Over my eyes there is a dark veil
When I don't see clearly is when I fail
I make wrong choices when I'm forced to guess
Oh please release me from being oppressed

awake in the day, i live in Your love
illusions are ended with strength from above
Your love and your mercy lights the dark night
miraculous beams... joy, peace, hope, delight
