The Fire Inside

I know life isn't perfect
Although I often wish it was

Wish I didn't have to numb the pain
Wish I wan't going insane

I look outside, see the beauty you've created just for me
I try to understand, there is beauty in all
The world makes it hard
Fat, skinny, pretty, ugly
What does it all mean?

The food goes in, faster and faster
Finger's pushing down your throat
Feel the satisfaction coming all back up

Counting colories
Empty stomach
Bones protrude

Beautiful faces all around
Why don't you fit in
Pounds fall off
Questions arise
Have you gone too far

Press it deeper into your skin
Watch the blood appear
It's like a magic act
Making the pain disappear

But it isn't enough
Not enough to dull the pain

You keep going
You need to change

Dark thoughts creep into your mind
Pills and guns
Ropes around your neck
Why, why, why
Are you frightened
Are you scared
You don't know how to feel
Your emotion has fled

Keep going, going, gone
Giving up is not an option
Tears are a failure
But so are you

Show everyone what you can do
Keep your head held high
And your emotions hidden deep inside
