If Death Knocked on my Door Today...If death knocked on my door todayMore Like This
Would you miss me?
Would I become,
Like my father before me,
A faded photograph on the mantel?
A pleasant memory
My children never knew?
If death knocked on my door today
Would you hate me?
Would you resent me
For leaving you all alone
With nothing but your fear and pain?
Trapped in an abyss
Of anguish and sorrow?
If death knocked on my door today
Who would protect you?
Who would hold you close
And dry your tears
And comfort you in your need?
Or would you
Bottle it up inside once more?
So if death knocked on my door today
Don’t grieve for me.
Be happy, my love, and patient
And we shall be together again.
The Monster InsideThere is a monster in meMore Like This
Deep within my mind
This monster grows day by day
Fed by those who are unkind
I desperately seal it away
Locked in a cage without a key.
Only the cage is made of glass
Fragile, brittle; it is easily freed.
When I'm told I'm not good enough,
Not smart enough, not fast enough,
Not tall enough, not strong enough.
When I'm told I'm too small
They are like stones thrown at the cage
Hitting and cracking the walls.
And the monster smiles, its grin savage.
As my cage weakens, it strengthens.
Finally the cage shatters
And the monster is unleashed
And I'm drowning in the sensation
In pain, as I lash out in anger.
In pleasure, as I hurt those who hurt me.
In horror, as I break bones and draw blood.
In sorrow, as I lose control.
This is the monster in me
This creature of violence and rage
There's a monster inside you too
How strong is your cage?
Escape the FearsI try to escape these fears.More Like This
And stop wasting my tears.
But they wont leave me alone.
They plan on eating me to the bone.
I try to fight back.
But when I try it all fades to black.
They haunt me in my dreams.
And no one can hear my screams.
I try to cry it all out.
Then the tears come back without a doubt.
I will be forever hunted by my fears.
And I wont last many more years.
Walk with me.Who wants to walk with me down this long road?More Like This
Who wants to make this journey that's so very cold?
Where hearts are dark with no room for love
Blackened their soul, twisted the raven to look like a dove.
Inner demons flooding my dreams
making the most normal thing not as it seems
Wildly dark demons penetrating my mind
searching for secrets, never for me to find.
The deepest trust given to ones I care for
turn to deceit and lies, friends no more.
The cruelest ways and words left me in sorrow
ripped out my heart like there's no tomorrow.
Feeling foolish and feeling so hurt...
as my heart no more important than a piece of dirt,
As I said, "Who wants this walk down this road with me?
Feel this pain, despair and my sorrow see?"
Cold ShoulderThe thing.More Like This
The thing you know.
The one thing you don't trust
Is always hidden below.
Below the shadows,
Beneath the dark,
Hiding with contempt
At the back of your heart.
You fear it, you know,
But you shrug it off.
"It won't be there," you say
To yourself with a cough.
If there's one thing I know
To tell you right now:
Don't show your fear,
Don't let it know how.
How to get inside
The tiny heart you own;
To rip it to shreds,
No matter how grown.
Don't let it begin
To show you the night.
Don't let it control you.
Don't let it; just fight.
Don't ever hold back.
Don't ever let down.
Or you'll soon find emotions
You thought you had drowned.
It's taken them in
And as you get older,
Don't ever turn your back
Or give it the cold shoulder.
