Tried to kill the pain only brought more Running from the truth A disguise I secretly hide Behind my mask that conceals the lie Enveloped in my darkness Smothered in my demise I'm the burning embers The ashes in the fire I fall into the nothing I become Losing control coming undone Thoughts reigning down one by one The storm is raging in my head I'm going under gasping for air I'm drowning in my river of despair Running from the truth Hiding from the past Denying the lie hiding behind The mask reveals the reality I fear I lose all hope blinded by tears I can't see past my sorrow here Visions of my troubled past appear Shadows my darkened heart Suffocating in my misery The noise in my head is loud Running from the truth Hiding behind a mask That reveals the story of my painful past Wishing for the death of my torment to end fast Can I ever be free of that? To feel peace and comfort inside? To find the real me live a life I never had? Just wishful thinking an evil joke My demons play in my head.
