The Prison

It's about isolating yourself from the world because bad things have happened to you

Can I shelter myself forever behind these walls

I'm tired of the damage inflicted upon me

Can I hide myself away from it all

Unnerved by the scars, bitter entrenched memories

 

Do I dare to leave this room

Do I dare to see the skies soon

To dwell in the dark, I'm safer now

No strains of love or struggle

I'm purging myself of doubt

 

A prisoner to the workings of my brain

Enslaved by lack of an iron will to live

Beyond the darkness I see the sunlight

But I don't even dare to dream

 

Do I dare to leave this room

Do I dare to see the skies soon

To dwell in the dark, I’m safer now

No strains of love or struggle

I’m purging myself of doubt

 

I refuse to be broken again

I refuse to let anyone else find their way

Heart's gate welded shut and a wall of ice around

I will not fall prey to the unseen predator

The formidable darkness of this town 

 

Do I dare to leave this room

Do I dare to see the skies soon

To dwell in the dark, I’m safer now

No strains of love or struggle

I’m purging myself of doubt

 

The End
