My burdened heart feels dead inside.
Happiness has gone to hide.
Thoughts as black and cold as night,
Chains wrap around, winding tight.
Chest is heavy with crushing guilt,
Burning every bridge we built.
Wishing to lay down and die,
Killing my soul for every time.
Every time I lied awake,
Wishing I could change my fate.
For every time I screamed for help,
Howling the hate that I have felt.
All the pain and all the fear,
The noise that makes me clutch my ears.
For everything I didn't do,
That could have made it easy for you.
For all the suffocating rage,
That made me beat the walls of this cage.
All of this I held inside,
