"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."

You there, with the teary eyes

Did you go through the same hell as me?

A never ending labyrinth

Filled with all disease?

The hell where night is endless

And worlds are broken

Dreams are crumbled

Lies are spoken

But I found a way

I found a door

That’s right, I’ve flown away

I’m depressed no more

A doctor disguised

As Peter Pan

Took me away

Offered me his hand

So open the door

And take the pills

See the world through different eyes

Stop crying all those tears

A never-ending neverland

With skies a deep true blue

A prescription-induced wonderland

Too good to be true

But soon the clouds drifted in

And the sky grew dark

Then I quickly realized 

This was no redemption ark

I was never saved

I was just playing dumb

Ignoring my true feelings

When what I really was, was numb

Was this the neverland

I was promised?

The freedom that I dreamed of

Is it really rotten?

Yes I no longer hurt

But I feel nothing at all

And yet someone once told me

You practice flying while you fall

And oh, how I wish I could fly away

Fly away into the air

And yet I’ve strayed so far from the road

I’m unsure if it was even there

Tell me, what would you choose?

To hurt or be numb?

To feel all too much or nothing at all?

Because I don’t know what I’ll become

Too late to second-guess now

So here I sit in neverland

A lie, an illusion

One no one understands

If I could do it again, would I be different?

If I had known there’d be a catch?

Because now my mind is burning

And I’m the one who lit the match
