Because You Wouldn't Listen

i watch the walls close on me now, why cant you listen?
i feel the compressed tension and i wish that you cared
i let you trap me here but not anymore i am leaving for me. 
so many days now i have tried to make this work
but i wont destroy myself anymore, i am standing up
take a look in the mirror and mabey you can see it
i am sorry that it has to go this way, but its the only way
i am fighting now, you cant hold me back, taking care of myself.
i feel the pain bubble inside of me once again, no peace
i hear the thoughts in my mind, telling me to give up on  life
i let you talk me out of running from this h ell but tonight i will be long gone. 
dont run after me...i have to do this to survive
dont try to stop me...you cant this time 
and all the times you made me cry, they will fade away
but today, i will take care of me...i will be on my way
you dont listen...but now i am doing this for my well being 
my emotional self is being ripped apart by your hands
and since you wont see that i need to get away, i will show you...goodbye.
