From Within

I am alive but dead inside

I sold my soul to someplace else

now I am in between

 

I cover my eyes for fear of what I might see

and what I have seen

Grounded, stuck to the ground

chained by my fears of insanity

 

I wreak havoc within me

though I may look at peace from the outside

I hear nothing

only the screams that deafen me

 

This is what no one sees

my inside mind so chaotic you’d get lost

and pray you’ll go mad

 

Nothing is what it seems

when it comes to my mind
