FALLEN BACK INTO YESTERDAY
JUST WHEN YOU BELIEVE TOO STRONG ABOUT LIFE
IT'LL REACH OUT AND PULL YOU BACK INTO THE LIFE LEFT BEHIND,
LEAVING YOU FEELING AS IF YOU WONDERED AROUND A TRACK
THAT HAD NO STRAIGHT LINE,,

THAT'S HOW I FEEL TODAY AFTER FIGHTING SO HARD
TO MAINTAIN MY LIFE OF BEING FREE,
WOKE UP THIS MORNING TO ONLY FIND
A EMPTY FEELING HELD WITH IN THE MIRROR,

LIKE IT WAS SO MANY YEARS AGO
ANOTHER DISEASE GRABS AHOLD OF MY SOUL,
PULLING AND TUGGING ME AROUND
LIKE A PUPPET ON A STRING,

LEADING ME IN A DIRECTION OF DESTRUCTION AND SHAME
AS I FIGHT TO GAIN CONTROL OF MY MIND
THE DRUG PULLS ALITTLE HARDER WITH EACH STEP
I TAKE TOWARDS THE EXIT OF HELL,

I'M NOT FEELING SORRY FOR MY MISTAKE OF BEING AN ADDICT
I AM ONLY TRYING TO FIND MY WAY BACK TO WERE IT ALL STARTS,
SO I CAN MAKE ANOTHER DECISION TO ESCAPE THIS INNER HATE
THAT I FEEL TOWARDS MYSELF WITH IN,

SOME SAY HOLD YOUR HEAD UP STRAIGHT
AND THINGS WILL BE OKAY,
BUT THEY JUST DONT SEE WHAT I SEE
WHEN I LOOK IN THE MIRROR AT THE FACE THAT IS STARRING BACK,

THERES A BATTLE GOING ON WITH IN THAT I HAVE NO CONTROL
AS MY BODY ACHES FOR WHAT IT DESIRES,
I CLOSE MY EYES AND FALL INTO THE VOID OF SHAME
AS THE POISON RUNS THROUGH MY VEINS,

WIPING OUT EVERYTHING THAT I HAVE STRUGGLED TO GAIN
LEAVING ME FEELING EMPTY INSIDE AGAIN,
DRUGS, ALCOHOL AND PAIN IS ALL THAT REMAINS
INSIDE THIS SHELL OF A MAN THAT STRUGGLES EVERYDAY,
