Inch by Inch


Inch by inch I am crawling away from you

Knew it wouldn't be easy to start with

But it gets easier each day that passes

In much discomfort I can see you writhe

How strong you can be when you really try

It doesn't matter that I broke down

Yes I am tattered and yes I am torn

Here I am now with no drawn on frown

I hold my own keys, control my own destiny

You can't be the ruler of my mind

I am mine and you cannot have me

I removed the mask that made me so blind
