Shut The World Away

All these pills and all these nooses
Will not cure my cuts and bruises
Only tear apart the scars
And break a thousand more aching hearts
And tears will not alleviate
All this bitterness and hate
Truths that are too hard to swollow
Will still be here with me tomorrow

And if I were to run away
In hope of finding a better day
All my pain and hurt will stay
But find me again along the way

All these things and all these needles
Render me so dumb and feeble
And all these things that I see
Are thoughts that live inside of me
And I’d change it if I had the power
Break free from this old, crumbling tower
I don’t wanna stay locked away
Not for another painful day

And if I were to run away
In hope of finding a better day
All my pain and hurt will stay
But find me again along the way

And I’ll choke on my words
When I try to plead with God
And I’ll fall to my knees
When I see that no one’s listening
But I’ll be damned if I give up
Shut the world away
Because I hate this world and everything in it
But I refuse to let it win

Shut The World Away

Just wrote this.
It might sound really bleak and depressing but it has a little hope in it.
Enjoy!
