From Letters To Words

When your backs against the wall and you don't know where to turn
You got nobody to talk to and you feel like your not a concern
You turn your letters to words
You turn your letters to words
So you no longer feel alone
As if your trapped in unknown zone
You turn your letters to words
You turn your letters to words

Sure some may think it's childish like your just reaching out for attention
But others are strugging with the same things you are and they're looking at giving your life an extension
Those who feel that it's childish are afraid to talk about those feelings like they don't exist
That's how they were brought up, that's how they were raised, but some lives you just can't assist

Hi, my name is Ken you know me cause I'm sure you've read a number of things I wrote
Been writing since before 99, the first thing I ever wrote got me sent to the schools psychiatrist, now I sit here and devote
Sometime into writing whenever the feeling comes over me, I've had people reach out and tell me they get how I'm feeling and it's helped them
Those people I would like to think that I perhaps had a change in there lives outcome
Sometimes it's not a public response but a private one, either way it doesn't matter
I'm happy to help, to prevent lives from getting shattered

When your backs against the wall and you don't know where to turn
You got nobody to talk to and you feel like your not a concern
You turn your letters to words
You turn your letters to words
So you no longer feel alone
As if your trapped in unknown zone
You turn your letters to words
You turn your letters to words

The world is a crazy messed up place, many of you have friends, but people like me have none
I'm rather shy  and very awkward, this thing called communication isn't my strongest, most of my days feel like a rerun
Thought I gone through this before, well I guess this battle isn't over and I have to do it again
I went through a short phrase where I would turn to family, got responses like "suck it up" and I gave up trying to explain
Nobody really understands my thought process or what goes through my head
Some where I would think that someone would rather see me alive rather than dead

When your backs against the wall and you don't know where to turn
You got nobody to talk to and you feel like your not a concern
You turn your letters to words
You turn your letters to words
So you no longer feel alone
As if your trapped in unknown zone
You turn your letters to words
You turn your letters to words
