How could I let it get this far
Smiling outside, burning inside
Built this wall of rational thinking
Raised it to the point of no return
Locked me up and lost the key
In this prison called my mind
Lost track of what it’s like to feel
Found out what it’s like to fail

Staring! Staring at the mirror
Trying to figure out who it is that’s staring back
Hollow! Hollow are my eyes
An endless void in a hurricane of thoughts
Control! I lost control
Of the man I used to be and the man that I’ve become
Grey! All colors fade
I’ve never seen this side of me, lost the will to fight

It takes time to get through this
A bumpy road with narrow turns
Without struggle there is no progress
Start believing in cause and effect

Every drop of my blood
Every tear that I’ve shed
Brings me closer to my goals
This life is mine to make or break

Never have I felt this way
The brightest days had all turn grey
Never ever will I feel that way
I took control, I told myself
Stop waiting for things to change themselves
I hold the key

This life is mine to make or break
Can not rely on anyone else but me
Stop wasting time on doubt inside my head
It’s all in my hands, I hold the key……
