Escape

Listen closely they try to say
That the voices will lead the way
This feeling maybe overwhelming
But it’s not here to stay.

When the stress kicks in
And the pain’s released
I try to sing it away
To attempt to find any escape

It doesn’t work.. it doesn’t work..

-Chorus-
To have the option to be happy
To be able to live my life
Is not what I was expecting
Because I was never taught to fight.

(An argument is hard to try)

My pain hardens quickly
The escape is nowhere near
My personality has been changing
Because who I’ve been is not me.

My mind is opened wider
My thoughts are misunderstood
My maturity is overrated
Yet I’ve still been kicked out the door…

-Chorus-
To have the option to be happy
To be able to live my life
Is not what I was expecting…
Because I was never taught to fight…
To think about the rest of my life
Is something I don’t even try…

My life was structured from the start
No lefts only rights.
My pain is aching ‘cause I never took a fight..
My experiences have been sheltered
Because they can’t stand to see my flight.

My mind is opened wider
My thoughts are misunderstood
My maturity is now clearer
Yet I’ve still been kicked out the door…


-Chorus-
To have the option to be happy
To be able to live my life
Is not what I was expecting
Because I was never taught to fight

To think about the rest of my life
Is something I don’t even try.
My escapes end quickly
Because they don’t let me have my own time
Nothing is ever me;
My feelings or personality

Pain has opened a new door
And it’s wider than before.
