Count to Ten

Count to Ten (8/5/2011)

I've spent too long
Looking the other way
Ignoring my own twisted ways
Oh, But I need to stare
Stare down this anger
This pent up rage inside of me
Life isn't easy
Especially for me
You spend all your time
Trying to be something
Everyone else needs

Oh, I 'gotta concentrate on myself for a while
'Gotta face these demons under my skin
'Gotta scream
'Gotta shout
Everything
I can't count to ten anymore
Oh, Can't count to ten anymore

I spent such a long time
Trying to fit in
But i realise i can't
Not if i don't get comfortable
With who i am
What's lying in my past
The person it's made me become

Oh, I 'gotta concentrate on myself for a while
'Gotta face these demons under my skin
'Gotta scream
'Gotta shout
Everything
I can't count to ten anymore
Oh, Can't count to ten anymore

I tried to ignore the guilt
Whenever rage boiled over
And burned those i cared about
Oh, But it's only a side-effect
Of ignoring everything

Oh, I 'gotta concentrate on myself for a while
'Gotta face these demons under my skin
'Gotta scream
'Gotta shout
Everything
I can't count to ten anymore
Oh, Can't count to ten anymore

No, I can't count to ten anymore
I 'gotta face these demons at last, Oh 

The End
