16. Trapped (featuring Santolin)
Lyrics
TRAPPED IN MY REALITY
2012 Bobby Sahlen, Gatorlegs Music, ASCAP
Starburst Music, BMI & ASCAP

Exit left
I'm good as gone
I must accept
I can't go on this way
I feel bereft
I've had enough
My mind's made up
There's nothing else to say

Been quite a ride
I lost my pride
and I know
it's all downhill from here
But locked inside
Reality
I'm too trapped
to disappear

(chorus)
Trapped in my reality, no way to be free
There's a pain inside of me that no one else can see
Wish I could go, there's somewhere else I'd rather be
But I'm trapped in my own reality


Wish I could say
one thing to you
I'd be delighted
with a different point of view
To aim my toes
at clouds on high
than muddle
on forever clutching to a lie
I could leave
without goodbyes
but never find
forgiveness in your eyes
I know it's true
I can't let go
trapped inside
my own horror show

(repeat chorus)

(instrumental break)

(repeat Chorus)
Short Song Description:
It is the very essence of the human condition that we are all "trapped" in one way or another within our own shortcomings and inability to achieve our full potential. Trapped in our stupidity, dishonesty, unhappiness, piety, self righteousness, bigotry...you name it. This song is intended to be theatrical in nature.
