Give my clarity, the means to fight
Every day through the darkest nights
Take my vanity and remind me when
The demons leave my prison within

Just take away every day I lost
Like frozen tears set on defrost
Make them new, remember light
Ignite my fire, restore my sight

I don’t know what you see
Every day you look at me  
I don’t care, I’m free of vanity
Insanity release, let me be free

Finally realize what I despised
The man I am, free of disguise
It’s over now, but not in the clear
This honesty will return my fears

If nothing else, just one more day
Return to me from what I strayed
It’ll be just fine to boldly redefine
Bury the past, let the scars realign

I’ll think of all the brave smiles I wore
The childhood dreams that I have ignored
When demons return with vengeance and knives
I’ll shine my bright eyes, and forever feel alive
