Unchained – Written Between February and June 1995 (Aged 20)


i was not feeling well
living in a self designed hell

i was trapped inside myself
begging to get out
it is as real as can be
as solid as you or me

i was running scared
from characters of my past
living demons with strange voices
cutting me like glass

they keep me locked up
decked as they are in plumes of blue
you comb back your hair
like you always knew
what was really there

i have got to get up
especially when i feel so drained
must be a better day
must be one which is unchained

James Garratt – February to June 1995
