This false reality I’ll forever know,

Is the only true feelings I will ever show,

To hide from the reality of the world,

Is to survive, to breathe,

And when the time comes,

I shall take my leave.

You cannot fix me,

Because I am not broken,

You cannot save me because,

I am not weakened.

If I choose to look into the mirror and do not see my face,

That is the way it has to be,

Do not save me.

If my heart slowly weakens,

And I still cannot see,

Do not save me.

I locked myself in a cage

When I decide to set myself free,

Do not save me.

Let me stray far away,

Let me cry,

Let me say,

Let me scream,

Don’t save me!
