I’m a prisoner of my own fear
Hiding from self-pity and guilt
Slowly I put a hard bed together,
And pretend to get a good night sleep.
This is a cell they say I’ll never leave.
Walls that refuse to break down.
Walls that I put up a long time ago to keep others out,
Trying to shield my heart and protect my sanity.
Little did I know it would backfire.
Nobody ever gets out,
Loosing themselves in the prison they built themselves.
I put myself there,
Now I can’t get out, my subconscious refuses to let me leave.
Stone cold walls holding me inside or
Is that just me keeping others out.
