Assaulted by noise
Bothered by voices
Choked by screams
Don't have any choices
Everything's sliding
Falling to the side
Going slowly by
Hauling away my pride
I cover up my eyes
Just to stop the scenes
Knowing they'll keep coming
Little, but by all means
Make yourselves a nuisance
Never cease to flow
Or invade my senses,
Permeate my glow
Question all my actions
Report all that you find
Show me what I'm made of
To show me that you're blind
Underneath my shell
Valiance shines through
Walled inside my body
X-rays reveal it grew
Yet despite the fact that things have changed
Zen-like states of mind remain arranged
