I wear I mask of smile,
Pretending I am well.
Act without hesitation,
I drown away my pain.

I am not hurt nor I'm broken.
Not lost I'm not insane.
I've just seen lots of violence
And I've embraced that pain.

I chose to be forgotten,
I chose to to own the blame.
I am my beast of burden,
I am my own remain.

I'll never lose my battle.
I'll never quit this game.
I'll never win it either.
I am my broken name.

I walk just like a shadow.
You'll never know my name.
I'll carry all your burdens.
Not asking for the fame.

I lived in damndest places,
I chose to hunt these man.
I sacrificed my reason
To be a beast not man.

I am my beast of burden,
A beast among the man.
I chose to be much lesser.
So I don't feel the pain.

This sacrifice is needed.
To save my fellow man.
I chose to be a lesser,
So they don't feel the pain.

The struggle I have chosen.
Is to defend not maim.
I chose to be forgotten,
So no one knows this pain.
