So many days,
(I’ve been running and hiding for years now)
Of sorrow and fatigue,
(Running from my fears, hiding from what I feel inside)
I feel so tired,
(Walking on eggshells every single day)
I feel so sick,
(Because I can’t take it when you scream at me)
My heart aches,
(But I realized that I have nothing to fear)
Within my chest,
(This is what I’m meant to be, who are you to change my destiny?)
It hurts,
(Why can’t you just accept me for who I am?)
I want to die,
(I don’t know what you want)
Just let me die,
(But I just want to feel like I’m where I belong)
 
 
 
THE VOICE IN MY HEART IS SCREAMING “LET ME OUT!”
I FEEL IT CREEPING AND CRAWLING AND CALLING WITHIN,
I THINK IT’S TIME TO FINALLY LET IT OUT,
THERE’S NO STOPPING THIS NOW,
YOU CAN’T KILL THE FIRE BURNING JUST BELOW THE SURFACE,
YOU’VE PUSHED ME SO CLOSE TO EDGE OF THIS LEDGE,
I CAN’T TAKE IT, I’M ABOUT TO BREAK,
I’M ABOUT TO LET LOOSE THIS PHEONIX WITHIN,
AND LET ITS FIRES BURN AWAY THE BOY YOU KNEW,
SO THE MAN I SHOULD BE CAN RISE FROM THE ASHES!
 
I WILL NOT BACK AWAY ANYMORE,
WHILE YOU SCREAM IN MY FACE,
AND IGNORE THE FEELINGS INSIDE OF ME,
YOU’LL LISTEN TO WHAT I HAVE TO SAY,
IF YOU DON’T THEN YOU MIGHT AS WELL SAY “GOODBYE,”
BECAUSE I REFUSE HANG MY HEAD AND LISTEN TO YOUR LIES,
LIKE THE GOOD LITTLE DOG YOU WANT ME TO BE,
I WON’T CRAWL INTO MY HOLE AND WALLOW IN SELF-PITY,
I’LL SCREAM MY HEART OUT FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE,
I’LL LET LOOSE THE FIRES OF PASSION IN MY STRANGLED HEART!
 
 
 
(Welcome to your darkest future)
(A world where I’m what I want to be)
(And the noose you planned to use on my dreams)
(Hangs limply in your hand, its purpose taken away)
(Now that the phoenix is on the loose)
