Nearly empty inside, my life fading fast,which direction should I take. Starring blankly at the T in the road, an important decision I need to make.
Sinking fast in an empty sea, scrambling to stay alive. Struggling just to stay a float, loosing the will I need to survive.
Paralyzed in fear, afraid of moving ahead, leading a life of disappointments and defeat. Locked down in chains, nowhere to go, caught in a tangled wed of deceit.
With a soul that's damaged beyond repair, displaying every intimate and personal detail. There's humiliation learking around every corner I take, highlighting every moment I have failed.
Drowning under piles of secrets and lies, slowly suffocating with every breath I take. Trapped behind the burning flames of hell, it's a gamble with my life as the stakes.
All of my stability and security stripped down, exposing every secret I tried to hide. Running now on auto pilot, defensive mode my emotions I'll keep buried deep inside.
Where do I go from here, the damage can't be erased. Reality sets in a little to hard, when it smacked me suddenly in the face.
