I never asked for you to be here,
I didn't want your insults, your lies, your...
But then you laugh,
Then you say 'goodbye' - and leave,
And it's only me.
I become free
From your persistent taunting and name calling and bullying and-
-I will not let it get to me.
I won't let it go round and round
(and round and round)
in my head and keep me up every night.
But I never sleep,
Because it never leaves.
Because deep down, I need
Its screaming, hate-filled cackle.
Without it I am nothing,
Without it I am free,
Without it I am my own person,
Someone who I don't want to be.
Honestly, I'd rather be trapped with an enemy,
Inside these concrete walls.
I'd rather hear its terrible voices,
Than hear nothing, or no one, at all.
