Society says You’re not sick; you’re just fine Society says that you don’t need help That you don’t know pain That you’ve never felt The way it is to have to ask Am I dying?
Some of you have never had to Walk home with your head on a swivel Your hands clutching keys Your head filled with fear Some of you Have never had to wonder If you’ll make it home in one piece
Nobody is okay But maybe thats okay for now because We are not by ourselves.
Feel the presence of the wondering spirits, the lost loved ones Taste the saltiness of the raging sea Feel the earth churning beneath you feet The grass and leaves, crumbling

Stuck fighting a battle that's not her own
You can never be betterYou will never do betterYou don't deserve betterThat's what I tell myself everydayI look in the mirrorDisgusted with my appearanceFull of regret from the decisions I've made
When it's gotten so hardThat you scream upon deathTo take you away from this miserable placeAnd you cry because no one can even noticeThat your crumbling insideThat your shattering into pieces
The decisions she's made lurk behind her like a predator and it's preyShe's never known where she belongedShe's never known what to sayHer voice weak in the crowdsShe cannot speakShe cannot be heard

Like a sheep overlooked by a shepherd, I am always being watched. Even in the privacy of my mind, Someone is judging my thoughts. The whole Godhead dwells within me, So never am I alone.
i guess i am lost i cant really focus on the passing faces it doesnt really matter because i guess i am lost i reach the staircase shoulder to shoulder we stand my mind drifts, i become a soldier
Not one man is ever alone, weather you like it or not you will always be part of something greater in your life, it may be bad, it may be good, it may do nothing for you now or affect the present world,
Fighter Put on those gloves and I feel the power surge. I feel the lightning in my veins. I hear the thunder in my heart. I become stronger with every drop of sweat. I become faster with every breath.
A song for the brokenhearted. The battered, The bruised. A song for the scared. The trembling, The timid. A song for the fighters. The determined, The brave.
I know one day you'll have to go and that's the day that I will know, that you'll be under heaven's apple tree looking down and watching over me. I'll miss you and you'll miss me, so I'll dream of our apple tree
