(i wrote this when i was 13 so i know its a little rough)
after that fight my sight wasnt so clear. im sorry i dont tell you everything, i have a fear.
i just cant open up to you for fear. i keep it from you for fear of....
(chorus)the beast i keep inside tears me apart. i try so hard to keep the demon of my
mind caged, but sometimes the mask falls off. i want to tell you everything, but i cant. i
run from myself cause im afraid the beast i keep locked up will catch up and take over
me. im in a war vs. myself and im afraid im losing. im losing.
the lock in my heart is rusted and old. my tears are acid that brakes the lock. with every
tear i trip a little bit more and i fall a little more behind. im catching up with myself and
im ready to fall. oh im ready to. im ready. oh take my life away.
now as i walk the halls of my mind i find no monster lurking around the corner. there is
no beast awaiting to tear me apart. the demon i thought i saw has disapeared. the war
has been fought. and i can finaly say i won.
