I hide within this prison of mine The one that I helped create To keep me safe from this world Keep me safe from the hate. I stay within these walls I've built Let no-one see what's inside I'm dead to my feelings, dead to it all I'm dead 'cause I've let me die. Afraid to open the door Afraid to see what's outside Afraid to let someone in Afraid I'll have no place to hide. There's a barrier between me and you One that I can't break down One that I really want to destroy I'm fed up of letting me drown. And the walls are too thick The gate is too strong There are no windows I've been here for so long... No light can enter No light can leave My prison fortress I can no longer breathe. I suffocate- the fault is all mine I suffocate- and give in without trying I suffocate- my eyes are now blind I suffocate- it's the end of the line. Fear of the beyond Fear of the unknown Fear of being an open book Fear of exposing my soul. It's kept me in for all these years Now that I finally want to break free I beat on the gate, upon the walls It's no use- I'm a prisoner of me.
