I wish I knew just how I got to this place
Where I can look in a mirror and see an unfamiliar face
Once a young man full of dreams and pride
Now just a lost soul that's empty inside
Before my life took many unfortunate turns
And replaced my family with headstones and erns
It seemed that my life had purpose and meaning
And I tackled each day with passion and feeling
Sometimes for a brief moment i'll catch a glimpse
Of that young man that I haven't seen since
I can feel him inside desperately trying to get out
But fears cloud my mind and fill me with doubt
I don't even know where to start because i'm bent and i'm broken
You can hear the pain in my voice with every word spoken
I wish I could find my way out of this place
And once again find myself in a more positive space
