Eraser by Thomas Hood

Every day I look in the mirror
Sight through the windows
Another void created
Promise me my end will be numb
Pass the bitter cup
Erase the outside as feeling fails

Control of the problem will kill the solution
Utter bliss is not a dream
The victim of hell needs absolution
Nothing to lull the demons’ hunger

Acid halo…
Eraser…

The world of shadows and silk
Under the mind
Costly chasms and unhealthy thunder
Invisible torment writes infection
Home is in the head
Why want to keep the damage

Control of the problem will kill the solution
Utter bliss is not a dream
The victim of hell needs absolution
Nothing to lull the demons’ hunger

Acid halo…
Eraser…
