Don't Think

 Don’t Think

Don't scorn me for my lies

Don't deny me my prize

If you don't know what it's like

To be trapped inside this mind

 

In time our hearts will change

In the light my face looks strange

If you don't feel my pain

Don't hide your tears in my rain

 

Fall and break

And don't blame

Anyone else

For scars you gave yourself

 

Fall on your knees to the floor

Beg for strength beg for more

If you go where you went before

Crawl back through that dark door

 

Fall and break

And don't blame

Anyone else

For scars you gave yourself

 

In your closet hang your ways

Ink runs off your tear-stained page

If you want to run away

Don't forget who you will pay

 

Fall and break

And don't blame

Anyone else

For scars you gave yourself

 

Lay down put your hurt to rest

Let the weight escape your chest

If you want to be my guest

Face this never-ending test
