Imprisoned

Why is it so dark in this cold room
Everything I feel is taking me to such a horrible doom
Will I ever make or mend this horror inside
Or will I always be known as the one who lied

The pain is so rapidly accelerating
Again and Again this guilt is inflating
These thoughts are overwhelming!
I desperately need to escape this feeling

Why is it so dark in this cold room
Everything I feel is taking me to such a horrible doom
Will I ever make or mend this horror inside
Or will I always be known as the one who lied

Forever bounded by this relentless cage
When will I be able to turn this page
Forgiveness I can never win
I will always be imprisoned by this sin within

Forever this internal hell torments me
It’s driving me deeper into insanity 
Why am I such a sinful man
Will I ever escape the darkness of who I am

I need to find just one escape from this place
Can’t live with this never ending disgrace
The disappointing looks forever haunt me
I need a Savior that can free me
Can you please come and find me

Why is it so dark in this cold room
Everything I feel is taking me to such a horrible doom
Will I ever make or mend this horror inside
Or will I always be known as the one who lied

Forever bounded by this relentless cage
When will I be able to turn this page
Forgiveness I can never win
I will always be imprisoned by this sin within

I always ask myself why
How could I let this time pass by
Please God save me from this hell
I now realize just how far I’ve fell

Why is it so dark in this cold room
Everything I feel is taking me to such a horrible doom
Will I ever make or mend this horror inside
Or will I always be known as the one who lied

    This one is my favorite. It reminds me of our late night conversations after I've dealt with certain people.... You know, pushed in a corner by the lies I've been told and making myself believe them.
