Their magnetic hands grab at me
pulling me into the dark
Inebriated with emotions.. "NO! Won't stop..won't stop.."
A spirit inside me is screaming
"Can't lose myself-
must keep

Their faces are dripping, brains oozing poisonous thoughts
But I can rise, I tell them
I don't need you
I will not go, I will not succumb
stop seducing me with the words
I will rip through, and leave this body full of self-deprecating,
mangled souls
You cannot secure me.

There is hope, there is willpower, there is a rip in the sky
with its dark cloud,
I can leave them.
