My hearts beats the sound
Of depression and pain
This trapped expression
Is slowly driving me insane


I feel lost in my thoughts
That haunt me every night
Pounding on my conscious' door
To put out my burning light


But I try my hardest
To fight back with all my heart
A weight is lifted off my shoulder
As I'm no longer torn apart


The gates to joy open
And I'm no longer drowning
I can breath above the surface
And smile instead of frowning


The world I've known for years
Seems to be long gone
For I am freed from my cell
And singing a birds tune of song


However, I slowly begin
To deteriorate from the inside out
My voice is caught in my chest

As I can no longer shout


The demon of hurt and hate
Has found me hiding once again
But this time seems unbearable
And I must seek the end


For any happiness I may feel
Is only temporary
And that's the one burden
That will forever scare me
