lyrics

I am not the mindless, self-indulgent wretch
That I was.
I have looked into the mirror of my soul
More than once.
I’ve contended with the dark.
I know just what lurks within.
I won’t let the monster have its way with me
Ever again.

So it waits, so it sleeps,
Though I’ve buried it so deep.
Still it waits for the day
When I give myself away,

When the flood comes rushing back again,
When the madness steals my mind again.

I am haunted by the memory of he
That I was.
I know nothing good can come
From forgetting what I’ve learned.

So I wait and I pray
That the chains will stay in place,
And I’ll not see the day
When I give myself away,

When the seal is broken once again,
We will never know restraint again.
When the flood comes rushing over me,
I will bid my sanity farewell.

I know just what you would do
If I turn my back on you.
I’ve no doubt that you’d destroy
Every good thing in my life.

And my peace, so hard-won,
Would be gone in just a day.
I know just what’s at stake
If I let you have your way.

When the seal is broken once again,
We will never know restraint again.
When the flood comes rushing over me,
I will bid my sanity farewell.
