Song from the band in my head

Verse:
We're all fighting demons, caused or self-inflicted
The story of our lives is tortured and conflicted
Heavy is the burden of our baggage past
A weight pressing down that's built to last
 
Pre-Chorus:
The enemy is us and the danger very real
Colors our perception and how we think and feel
 
Verse:
Ghosts from the past haunt your every move
Shaking their heads in silence as they disapprove
Climb that mountain as they root for you to fail,
Towering monsters with their foot on the scale
 
Pre-Chorus:
The enemy is us and the danger very real
Colors our perception and how we think and feel
 
Chorus:
Weight of the world pressing every day
It is a monster that will never go away
If you're going to make it, you'll make it despite
Your baggage bent on bleeding you white
 
Verse:
Skull and cross bones from your poison pen
Effects today from years way back when
If you let them, they will consume you
Control every moment you're going through
 
Pre-Chorus:
The enemy is us and the danger very real
Colors our perception and how we think and feel
 
Chorus:
Weight of the world pressing every day
It is a monster that never goes away
If you're going to make it, you'll make it despite
Your baggage bent on bleeding you white
END
