The demons within.

Fast asleep the world gets small.

From within I try to call.

To escape a place that feels so wrong.

Drained and alone.

Scared and cold.

Lost and betrayed, that's how you play, I hate that day.

Sick and ashamed, so far away.

Give into the game, can't find the way.

Fizzled and fused.

Battered and bruised.

Everything to lose, feel so used.

Silly and small, you look like a doll.

Inspired and moved, not scared of you.

No way to fight back, time to react.

Failing the game, now who's to blame.
