My mind is my prison  Just my thoughts hold me in 

No fences, no walls,  No physical obstacles 

Afraid of failure I stay locked away  Giving these demons ample time to play 

Pushing, pulling, they distort my thoughts  Twisting my mind into giant knots 

Oh how I want them to just go away  These demons that play and I allow to stay 

I want to be free, but that comes with a cost  Because without my demons I would surely be lost 

And so I hide in this prison of my own creation  Anxiously waiting for some sort of salvation.
