Sanity is pushed to the side
Never to be found
In this fragile mind

It's gone
Destroyed in its wake
Taking a respite
In the darkness

When the tables are turned
And the lessons are burned In my mind

The hatred seethes
Through the cracks of my existence

All this time
It's been clear
What I should do
The realization of me
The time of my life

Has come to a head
An explanation of joy
A stripping away of hatred
A life away from the cage
It's what I needed...

I can't breathe
I can't feel
Won't you save me from myself?
Don't you see
It's all a plan
To strip away my sovereignty

The time has come
To feed the flames
Keeping my soul in its cage
It won't be easy
To keep me enslaved
As long as my mind is kept safe

I guess it's not easy to forget what I've done
Just another day, another song unsung
Maybe I can rectify what I have failed to do
Yet another feeble attempt at returning to you

Something this obvious I failed to see
It was right in front me, taunting me
A punch in the gut, a slap in the face
My arrogance has failed me…once again

I can breathe
I can feel
I've been saved from myself
I can see
The plan to steal me
It has failed
And now I’m free
