My Insane Asylum
A locked cage that won’t let me out, won’t let me breathe, won’t let me be…
Like an exotic bird they won’t let free; why won’t they let me spread my wings
They say they have given me the necessities, right in this torturous cage, but that’s not true
If it were, I wouldn’t be suffocating, trying to breathe, but with all hopeless as my lungs collapse inside myself
Along the floor, lie the broken promises, memories that I had promised to preserve a long time ago
…But that was then, and this is now.
No more soft me, not the marshmallow; they want the hardened, the don’t-give-a-fuck me
How the fuck do you think I ended up here, in this cage, that they try to restraint me in
But they know I’ll get out, they know I’ll find my way
Because you can’t keep someone as crazy as me from entering the world, from bringing my terror across this city
No one is safe from me…not even myself,
Once, a long time ago, I cared about others, but now, all humanity has lost
Evil has taken over, true evil, has consumed me in a way that doesn’t seem possible
Or am I just bluffing, I don’t want to lose you with what I’m saying, so don’t become panicked
Perhaps I’m not evil, maybe that’s just the third voice inside my head talking right now.
They seem to take over, and that’s why they’ve put me in this locked cage, that’s the real truth
But there are voices all inside our heads, they just haven’t embraced them. THEY just haven’t accepted them, like I have, like I am, like I will always be
Hold me back.
Before I go off, and spin out of control, and I break this cage without hesitation, they won’t be able to stop me
They won’t be able to contain me anymore, they won’t leave me alone, I’m racing and pacing, up and down the floor
Jittery, like some of the drug addicts they put in here, that’s how shaky I’ve become…
Only time will tell when I finally break out of the cage.
And rain the hellfire from my asylum out into the world.
