Inside

Well now, you can run but you cant hide

You can not fight off whats inside

You think you can outrun your horrid past?

You think you can make your smile last?

You think your troubles are just from others?

You think life is just shapes and colors?

Silly soul, your problems are within you.

Do you really think you can just chose?

Your demons are not just your enemies and foes

They're your secrets that no one knows.

They're the mistakes that you'll never forget

They're the words you'll always regret.

Your demons are the chances you never took

They're the place you never thought to look.

They're the tears you just could no longer hold

They're the truth that just had to be told.

It's like you spend your life trying to run

Hide from everything and everyone

You run from everything that's made you hurt

Until you stumble into the dirt

And look up to the sky, and finally see

That closure is what you actually need

And stand up, and realize its no good to hide

Because every demon you need to face, is inside...
