Another Scar

It's all about having problems on your mind, that you just can't shake

I've been wearing myself out, but I've tried

To get what's been plaguing me nullified

But it's too much for one man to take, and woe betide

The world shines a light on the battles I hide

 

But I known I'll be alright

Heartbeat accelerates to a faster pace

Waking amidst cold sweat every night

My mind conjures another thought

To make my heart race

 

The coming days make me afraid

It scares me, it hurts me

Another scar upon my heart

Another mark upon my sleeve

It's all just in your imagination

But I'm consumed by my mind's creation

 

I'm not worried by what's been building up

I'm not panicked by my draining spells of luck

But I must admit, I think I'm really scared this time

I can't expel the ghosts, purge the doubts from my mind

 

I think my confidence has fell aside

I'm the wrong man to tell you how to live

But I'm always happy to oblige

Even if what I say, is nothing but lies

I do this sorta thing all the time

 

The coming days make me afraid

It scares me, it hurts me

Another scar upon my heart

Another mark upon my sleeve

It's all just in your imagination

But I'm consumed by my mind's creation

 

Burning inside, and fading just as quick

The walls around me

Falling brick by brick

Booming inside, silence just as quick

Awoken from blissful sleep

By life's calculated kick

 

The coming days make me afraid

It scares me, it hurts me

Another scar upon my heart

Another mark upon my sleeve

It's all just in your imagination

But I'm consumed by my mind's creation

 

The End
