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.
