A dark cloud over me
No matter how hard I battled I seemed to be stuck
No matter how hard I tried to overcome the struggle it was eating me alive
Breathe, wake up, walk
What is wrong with you I yelled, " You have God!"
Get up battle, don't give up
Life keeps throwing punches at you
Life keeps making you fall
But fight, fight and be strong
Don't give up
Don't you dare ...

I don't know.. my life seems out of my control... It's no longer mine it's in the hands of those around me and the governing forces that keep me in line.. I just don't know.. it feels so weird to be sober.... So... Weird... Its not normal for me to fall asleep in a natural way. It almost feels unnatural.. my addiction has become the ruling figure in my life not my emotions,love or financial stabil...

I thought I had changed
I thought I was better
I thought I beat it
I thought I fixed it
But here I stand
Trying to be tall
Knowing I am so small
The world pressing down
I’m scared again
Swore I never would be
And no one likes it
No one wants to hear it
So keep it hush
Keep it low
Don’t want to be
The girl who cried wolf
But until ...

I am fifteen years old and I think I own the world.
I have a boyfriend and he loves me.
He yells at me but that is okay, he loves me.
He shoves me but that is okay, he loves me.
He slapps me but that is okay, he loves me.
He holds me down as I yell and scream because it hurts but that is okay, he loves me.
I am sixteen years old and I escaped my first abusive relationship....

The Fact of no naps no snaps or snap backs
To wake you up from the fact you were never sleep
Can't sleep for the time you weep but seep
Into the fact that you can't sleep
Wanting to have dreams and past a test with ease
But I can't sleep
There has been a robbery where sleep doesn't reflect on eat
From the fact eat didn't take care of sleep
To where somebody has stolen eat a...

You’ve gotta help me
There is something wrong with me.
It's an illness!
But it's not,
In the messy web
Of the venomous spider
That is called
I have a crush.
I need help,
But his hair has these lovely curls,

I'd like you to like me
and I'd like you to know,
Id doesn't like me and Superego doesn't know where to go.
I've planned a trip to where the tulips grow -
find a vein, push a plunger, let the psychotropes flow.
I know you don't like me
and we've nowhere to go.
Ego doesn't know what to do and Id has hate to sow.
I'd like you to, I'd like to oblige you to throw

Back on the grand stage again
The place where I feel so comfortable
Well, where I used to feel so comfortable
Something doesn’t feel right
I don’t the feel the music anymore
The source of my happiness
It’s like the sun has burnt out
Like the moon has lost its glow
I want to sing but my voice keeps breaking
I want to play but my fingers keep shaking
