I am in a glass house
Protected from the world
I am safe inside
It's all I know.

Someone shatter the glass
and take me alive
Let me know I can feel
Let me know I can die
The pain I've endured
Even when I was "safe"
I inflicted upon myself
Let me learn from my mistakes

Now take this pain
Away from me
Tell me that now
I can finally breath
I can move my hands
They are free from glass chains
Take me in
Hold me in your forgiving embrace

I am a glass house
So easily shattered
But I do not get weaker
I can now become stronger
I will slowly change
From glass to steel
And once something cracks me enough
And the glass suit falls off
You will see how strong I have become
When my steel armor is shown

I was in a glass house
Protected from the world
Supposedly safe
It was all I ever knew

I thought that was very well done. I loved how you went back and almost, but not quite, repeated yourself at the end.
