The Day That I Fell Down

They probed into my attic, And were disturbed by what they found, Accumulated years of cluttered thoughts, And labeled me unsound. They put me in a rubber room, With chains upon my feet and hands, They fed me pills to numb the roar, And to kill my inner man. The roar seemed to diminish, I talked to flowers and to trees, But somewhere along the way, I lost the real me. I look forward to my future, But i really miss my past, They tell me that im normal now, Wonder if it will really last. I remember who i was before, They came to steal my brain, Just a man whose heart was shattered, Trying to deal silently with his pain. I guess i didnt have the right, To express my brokeness inside, But theres no pill or institution, That will make me run and hide. I will always remember the good times, I will treasure moments wrapped in love, No matter what they think of me, I'll always give thanks to God above. I know one day he will rescue me, And place on me a crown, And he will wash from me the heartache, Of the day that i fell down...
