Surrounded by thoughts
That weigh me down
The pressure building up inside
I'm starting to crack
As darkness engulfs my reason and my sanity

I've lived a life enshrouded by misfortune
Every day I wake I wish I wasn't who I am today

I hate my life and this tug of war
Going on between me and death
Crushing my soul
I can't take much more of this (more of this)

In every scar a story told
But I just can't lose control of me
I see the smile in others' face
So I just wear one too to hide my bane

But my silence gives it aid
I need out before I fade

This tug-o'-war wears me down,
Drags me around
Numbness seeps deep within,
Life becomes a chore
No purpose, no reason
To keep this up

I've lived a life enshrouded by misfortune
Every day I wake I wish I wasn't whom I have become

I might as well end it here...

But as I contemplate my final hour
My whole life flashes by in an instant

I see glimpses of the smile I used to show
A smile fueled by sincerity

The carefreeness of simpler times
When worries weren't part of the equation

Where did I go? When did I lose myself?
I want out... I want out!

Ripping through these walls
I have built to cage myself

I can't leave, I'm not fulfilled
If I'm still here, I'm not done yet
I'm not done yet

I'll live another day
