Spiral Staircase

I was at first a child

When I learned of what would be

A shadowed figure motionless at night

Would visit me

I would be be amazed

At all the stories that I heard

Captured every detail

But he never said a work

I remember one time

When I almost saw his face

But everyday that sund would rise

And he would fade away...

Could it be that sanity

Is not as it was meant to be

In time the child will see

The truth that lies in me...

A day ago atop the spiral stair

Is where we met

A quiet man resembling me

I haven't seen him yet

He was not there

Once more again today

How I wish that man

You know I wish that man would go away...

Could it be that society

Is not all it was meant to be

In time the man will see

The truth that lies in me...

Just the other day atop the spiral stair again

Corner of my eye

A vision caught my attention

Upon a second look 

There was a mirror on the wall

Could it be the man was me

Who's been here all along...

Could it be that sanity

Is not all it was meant to be

In time the child will see

The truth that lies in

Could it be society

Is not all it was meant to be

In time the man will see

The thruth that lies in me
