"I'm not surprised, it's just kinda suprising." -me

I can't even bear to look at myself
It's almost like I've become a monster
Too far away from it all, too lonely
Defeated by my own soul and sickness
Why do my interests mean nothing now?
Why am I bleeding and dying inside?
I can't take it when I've hurt my loved ones
Screaming, ranting, raging beyond control
My life is no longer safe in my hands
The devil tries to get ahold of me
But he will not, I refuse to let him
I may be wounded, but I'm not broken
I won't be posessed by my own sick ways
I won't give in to the dark in my mind
See I'm breaking through now, more than ever
I have to find a way out, have to kill
These demons inside me, they won't let go
I have to stop these knives across my wrists
I have to end this unstoppable hate
Evil may be overwhelmingly strong
But Jesus is with me, and He'll never leave

"It's a saying they have, that a man has a false heart in his mouth for the world to see, another in his breast to show to his special friends and his family, and the real one, the true one, the secret one, which is never known to anyone except to himself alone, hidden only God knows where."
-James Clavell, "Shogun"

I like how confrontational this is. You're clearly not holding back any of your thoughts, and that's a good and important thing.
