STRUGGLE


I struggle with desire

Of that which does inspire

Me to follow every move

Hanging on to every groove

To follow brings me pain

Closer to the flame

Only slowly will I share

Every thought and every care


Struggle 

Tearing at  the ropes that hold me down

Struggle

No one left to hear me make a sound

Struggle 

Can not bear to face the pain inside

Struggle

Nowhere else to find a place to hide

Struggle 

Chasing out the demons in my head

Struggle

Reaching out before I end up dead

Struggle

Choking back the tears that blind my eyes

Struggle

Please God will you save me from these lies


It starts to all unfold

Doing what I’m told

Time begins to fade away

Getting further every day

All the time I’ve lost

Wondering what it cost

Giving up reality

Now I dream perpetually


Struggle 

Tearing at  the ropes that hold me down

Struggle

No one left to hear me make a sound

Struggle 

Can not bear to face the pain inside

Struggle

Nowhere else to find a place to hide

Struggle 

Chasing out the demons in my head

Struggle

Reaching out before I end up dead

Struggle

Choking back the tears that blind my eyes

Struggle

Please God will you save me from these lies



Thoughts of fear and purpose

Only tends to hurt us

Do not bother, no I must

Hold on to the words I trust

To make a right decision

A steady cut incision

Cut directly in my mind

For the answers I must find 

No I must

No I must


Struggle 

Tearing at  the ropes that hold me down

Struggle

No one left to hear me make a sound

Struggle 

Can not bear to face the pain inside

Struggle

Nowhere else to find a place to hide

Struggle 

Chasing out the demons in my head

Struggle

Reaching out before I end up dead

Struggle

Choking back the tears that blind my eyes

Struggle

Please God will you save me from these lies
