Why does it have to be so unacceptable for me to say that I'm unhinged

I'm down and out

My anger is taking revenge

Pounding my fists on chest

Just trying to do my best

I can't control these emotions

Shouldn't it be okay for me to say I'm mentally singed

Dark rooms and books binged

It's the only way I can feel level

See I'm teetering on the edge

This slippery slope is beveled

I wish I could join you in your revel

But I'm choking on every syllable

Dancing with my devil

I'm losing it, going mental

Stuck in my head

All my demons tempting me

Telling me it's better to be dead

I want to scream

Wish I could borrow your dream

Depression coursing through my bloodstream

Feel what it's like to be free

But these demons are plaguing me

Hiding between the moonbeams

From the outside I'm great

But my cranium can only process hate

What's it like to be okay

It's kinda fucked but I feel that way

Can't remember the last time I was brave

This sickness in my head won't behave

Downward spirals; now concave

I'm screaming out to be saved
