Dark Place

1998 - 2010

Running away from the claws of my hallow mind

I'm so scared of the dark place I've forced myself in

Breathing in dead unwanted air

Carelessly taking more steps than I should

I can't fight a demon that won't let me win

But I can't sit alone with a tear in my eye

I've held it all back for so long

Don't know how much more I can take

How much pressure I can withstand

No sword, no gun, I have no defense

All I have are empty hands

And a spirit that's withering away

What strength can I present

When I face the dark

Again I'm all alone

And I can't bare anymore

What's become of me

Speeding up my destiny

I'm not staying in this hole

I've put me in

But I can't fight a hell

That won't let me win
