"I've had enough, this is my prayer: that I'll die living just as free as my hair." --Lady Gaga

Your voice is getting louder now,
So I just shut my eyes.
But that won't make you go away,
I know because I've already tried.
This nightmare that you call a home
Is slowly burning out.
Along with my feelings of love for you,
That are lessened with every shout.
If I'd had my way, this haunted house
Would have burned down years ago.
But it's still here, and so are you,
Screaming things that I already know.
So I put on my headphones and drift away
To a place where your voice can't go.
It's here I feel that I am understood
And I can make my feelings known.
There's no one to judge me and no one to hate
The person that I choose to be.
It's here that I find myself all alone,
And here that I'm finally free.
The music is getting louder now,
Your voice fading into it's sound.
So go ahead and scream at me,
I can't even hear you now.

The author's comments:
Everyone can identify with the feeling of simply wanting to run away from whoever or whatever is "screaming" at us. Sometimes all it takes is for the music to swoop in and carry you away on its wings, freeing you from the "noise".
