Lyrics from the band in my head

Verse:

Recognition is lost of the man in the mirror

That I’ve changed is becoming so clear

First thought is how will this affect me?

This is not the way I want things to be

 

Pre-Chorus:

Bell rung leaves someone I don’t know

A faded shadow of a time long ago

 

Verse:

 

Cold war between today and yesterday

A constant battle to keep the demons at bay

What have I become and where will I be?

Already in a place I never wanted to see

 

Chorus:

Battle of me rages from the dawn’s early light,

Enhancing my emotions and bleeding me white

Leaving a barren landscape and emotional scars

A confused, conflicted man behind invisible bars

 

Verse:

The greedy selfish man that I have become

Fighting memories that I run away from

What have I become and where will I be?

Already in a place I never wanted to see

 

Pre-Chorus:

Bell rung leaves someone I don’t know

A faded shadow of a time long ago

 

Chorus:

Battle of me rages from the dawn’s early light,

Enhancing my emotions and bleeding me white

Leaving a barren landscape and emotional scars

A confused, conflicted man behind invisible bars

 

END
