I've tried to play nice with the demons in my head.
The clock ticks, another hour passed.
I'm still trapped in this bed.
How can I sacrifice to move my life along…
When all that I seem to have
Is what hasn't come and gone?
I am the reminder of the pain.
Through my torment I will show a way to augment hope .
The sound to break the bounds-- From harmony to discord.
You've locked yourself in your dismay…Hiding away.
When you're only hanging on by a thread.
I know it's hard to carry on…Keeping composure for too long.
The light gets harder just to see
Just stay here with me.
I guess the cliche lines, repeated rhymes, just couldn't keep up time with our unstable minds.
Because we search for something more-- Search for comfort from the storm.
Have we been damned since the day we were born?
Or chastised, broken just to fit a form?
There's always a light… Even if it's just out of sight.
I know it's harder just to breathe; you've become your worst enemy.
Please don't let go.
