Innocence was lost years ago
Not mine, but everyone around me
Some thing changed
White turned to black
Friends turned to enemies
Wrong turned to right
And happiness turned to depression

Escape was nowhere in sight
But I needed more than anything to get out of there
Everyone around me was changing,
Yet I didn’t want anything to do with it
I didn’t want to join them
I wanted out
I was overwhelmed and felt suffocated
Those were the years everything changed
And somehow I managed to escape it
