Beneath the mask
There's a war inside my head
Between an Angel and a demon
The Angel says I'm doing good
The demon keeps on screaming.
Your doing better than you did.
No! You need to try much harder!
I dunno who's right just don't let me
End up like my father.
My chest begins to tighten
And there's a pain in the middle
Its hard to catch a break when your
Brains scrambled like a riddle.
Am I really good enough? Or just
Somewhere in the middle?
The thoughts inside my head play
My depression like a fiddle.
Some days I feel dazed
Out of place and my body numb.
Hoping those I love are somewhat
Proud of what ive become.
Sometimes I need to cry but the tears never seem to run.
I just wanna be
But the pains rooted so deep
I just need a light that can wake me
From this sleep.
Can you guide me away from the peak.
Take me to safety so I can finally be
