There's a darkness inside you,
Not a single soul left out.
There are demons that will haunt you,
Demons you should know about.

They tell you you're unworthy,
Haunt and terror your aspirations.
Drop your spirits to the floor,
Steal happiness from whole nations.

Do not, I repeat, do NOT,
Believe a single word they say.
They're liars, evildoers.
Send them far away.

You are worth it, you are strong,
Even if you feel like you don't belong.
Don't give up, don't tire,
For many a person you will inspire.

You have friends at your side,
Allies that love and care.
They will stand by you in battle
For life and death, anywhere!

So please, I beg you,
If your inner demons attack:
Call your friends for their help,
And we'll ALWAYS have your back.

Don't fight alone till you're beat,
Don't dwell in depression of defeat,
We don't want you to hide,
We want to stand by your side.

We love you, don't forget.
We love you...
Never forget.
