                                Get out of your head...
           Muffle that lying, doubting voice in your head
             Turn off that voice of defeatism screaming
         Into your ear loudly so you grow gradually deaf
                  So you're bamboozled into believing...

             Your best isn't good enough, because it is
That you're unlovable. False. You're lovable, in every way 
   That you're weak. No, you're not. You're the opposite!
  That you're worthless. Wrong. You're a precious jewel
                          That you're destined to fail...

     At happiness, at relationships, at building your dream
 At anything. It couldn't be further from the truth. Mute the 
  Voice of insecurity in your head, lest it forms a growing 
Crack that becomes an irreparable fissure on your psyche 
                                Get out of your head...
