FTH ~ Send Me AwayMature

Send Me Away

 

Banished to this place to face my sanity

Vanished in a race to chase prosperity

More than just a victim of a blind bureaucracy

Sent away to soak up the profanity

Sent away to fight for my own identity

 

But you can lock me up and you can send me away

But when my time finally comes I'll be back and here to stay

Yeah large and in charge and back in your face

After I've chewed up the humility and swallowed the disgrace

 

And while I'm soaking up the tranquil view

With nothing to see but solitude

I'll depend only on myself to pull me through

And as I enjoy all of the serenity

I'll search my soul to see what I can see

And no one will be more in tuned to me than me

I know you won't win, I know you won’t succeed

 

'Cause the truest test of inner strength

Is to be by yourself, with no one else

It builds strength and it builds pride

To know you can live with yourself and no one else inside

In fact, I'm thankful for the opportunity

To be alone a get in touch with me

I'll learn more about myself than you'd ever achieve

 

So you can lock me up and you can send me away

But when my time finally comes I'll be back and here to stay

Yeah large and in charge and back in your face

After I've chewed up the humility and swallowed the disgrace

 

And if you think you'll get on top of me

With the goods you think you've got on me

Believe me, you won't succeed

'Cause this'll be just what I need

And nothing will be stronger than the strength I'll achieve

See I'll turn the mirror back on me

Until I'm pleased with what I see

Too bad you're too weak for this kind of sobriety

The End
