False Perceptions

I wish I may I wish I might

Just another day just another fight

This pain is changing me

And I've lost who I want to be

I have fallen into the dark

Where these scars have left their mark

The cold metal of a blade isn't so bad

I want to feel something else and forget what I had

I feel this pain when I open my eyes

I just want to cut away all my ties

And let go of all the things I know

To lay myself bare until there's nothing left to show

I will never look at this world the same

As I see inside myself, so full of shame

If what I feel is truly love

Then shouldn't I be so high above

All my self-deceptions

All these false perceptions

Or maybe that's all it'll ever be

Just an illusion, not reality

This is my own prison cell

A little place I call Hell

Always at the back of my mind

Reminding me of love that I'll never find
