let me tell you a story.

Let me tell you a story

Of her heavy mind that cried 

Every night to the moonlight

As she always questioned why.

Let me tell you a story

Of how the world is a hypocritical thing
It urges you to soar above the clouds 

But never mentions it cut off your wings.

Let me tell you a story 

Of a darkness that submerges the soul

Despite how unyielding one fights

The force is not possible to control.

Let me tell you a story 

Of the painful screams from his bed

Blood dropped onto his white sheets

From the skin he cut to shreds.
