With time it grew taller and stronger
the harder I tried, the harder it was.
21 years and counting, knowledgeable in my days
I just can't do it, plummet to eternity
chasing a noose the plummet has ended.
So what is it really I've done so wrong?
Bloodstained pain pierced my naked body.
Swearing me to pitiful tears, I knew what had come
and beginning with my last step
I thank God for saving my life.
