Sneakers - Lyrics by Robert Costello

[Verse 1]
I must be going insane
Dark thoughts pour through my mind like rain
Light doesn?t repel the dark
It?s just a brighter shade of pain

[Chorus 1]
My paranoia is always creeping up on me
It makes me fear the unknown
But the unknown don't fear me

[Verse 2]
Life hasn?t been the same
I don?t think I can bear the pain
If I can control my dreams
Maybe I can silence the frightful screams

[Repeat Chorus]

[Solo]

[Verse 3]
Like sneakers it makes no noise
It Creeps up on me from out of the void
If I can stay out of its way
Then I might survive the day

[Repeat Chorus]
