And as the wild myself surrounds

Trees stick out their bony fingers
Searching for the nonbelievers

Dark deeper than my deepest fears
So dark and yet the snow so white
Reflects even the smallest light

Real and fake look just the same
I'll make the wrong choice I fear
Lost forever in the trees
Of this snowy land of dreams

Winter clutches the world around
Muffles even the loudest sound
