Somewhere I Belong

My last mistake
Was thinking I was the king
In a world where my thoughts
And words mean nothing

Stoked the flames
Of standard teenage lust
While the statue of my life
Began to rot and rust

Swept off my feet
By the knife to my throat
Slumped on the floor
Groaning out my lone note

Don't wanna lose
The last semblance of control in my life
Like I'm just a puppet
Just a slave to the strife

Hand me the reigns
To all my pain
So I can make it through the rain
I need to grasp onto what's left of my own life

Hand me the reigns
To all this pain
I can't see past the rain
I wanna go back home buried deep inside your arms
Somewhere I belong

Used the man
The needle clasped in my hand
Signified the end long ago
When I knew it was banned

A secret fix
I kept shooting it in
When I told everyone that
I wouldn't even begin

She saw the scars
I knew I shattered her trust
And every pillar that we built
Began to rust

Down on the floor
Bloodied and alone
And the fault is my own
Yes, the fault is my own

Hand me the reigns
To all my pain
So I can make it through the rain
I need to grasp onto what's left of my own life

Hand me the reigns
To all this pain
I can't see past the rain
I wanna go back home buried deep inside your arms
Somewhere I belong

Now, the needle breaks
Glass and metal strewn across the floor
I wish I'd quit before
I watched my lover walk right out the door

Will I make it right?
Will I atone for my sins that claimed my life?
I will find a way
I'll cleanse my soul today
