I’m trapped inside
This skin you’ve made
It’s much much worse
Than any cage
It moves with me
Wherever I go
I used to guess
But now I know
I can’t keep living
In the dark
Can’t have a fire
With no spark
I can’t keep pretending
To be who you want me to be
I can’t keep wearing this
It isn’t me.
My wings strapped down
My mouth taped shut
The chains made of iron
The ground made of mud
I so want to be
Myself again
So one day soon
I’ve got to shed this skin
It’ll be painful then
This I know
And it’ll be a hell of a show
But when it’s all said and done
I’ll show my true self
And fly towards the sun.
This skin you’ve put me in is getting too tight
