You choose to go to sleep instead of choosing to paint longer
You choose to throw out rotting food instead of choosing to eat it
You choose to go to work instead of choosing to stay home

You can control what choices you make

But what if you couldn't choose what choice you make
What if you always have to make the same choice?

You always have to choose to paint all night
You always have to choose to eat rotting food
You always have to choose to stay in your home

You know you can never change what choices you make
You know you will always choose that choice

Insanity is not to doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results, that's just determination
It's knowing you can't control your life and the choices you make in it.

The ones that come from our eyes we can trust
The life we live can attract a bunch
The worse we see the worse they punch
They pose no harm to anyone else
They only choose to eat away your sense of self
Forget what you've see and you might save yourself

The ones from our brain are made by us
They don't harm us but only the ones vulnerable to us
Our choices that we make affect how our brain is made
No matter the intentions when making these choices
It affects how we think which listens to the voices
Make good choices and you might not hear the voices

The scariest of all come from the heart
These are born with us and awoken in different parts
They are a piece of who you are and can not be separated
They can harm yourself and others you love
But this demon is part of you so you can learn to control them
Learn your demons and then you work on living with them

I held my daughter in my arms. Just three old years old, she is a survivor like me. She is the only one who hasn't been turned by the shadows. I cradled her in my arms just as I did when she was a baby. I think back to the distant memories of my wife and our family. But the thought vanishes as quickly as it begins. A few days ago I was trapped but I knew I had to rescue my daughter and I did just that. So here I am sitting in a very bright room in my house with a barricaded door. All is quiet until I hear some screaming. Not screaming of pain or fear, but the screaming of a monster. I hear one.. then two… then… they found us. I hear banging on door as hideous screams fill my ears. My daughter starts panicking and crying loudly. I softly stroke her hair just as I did when she was younger. She slowly calms down and sobs softly. I look at the entrance and hear the screams and banging on the door. The door will not hold for much longer. I hold the only thing I hold dear in my arms as it's tears run down my neck. I kiss her cheek and stroke her hair one last time as she slowly falls asleep. I slowly wrap my hands around her small neck and quickly snap it. Instantly she goes limp. I will not let those shadows turn my little girl into a monster. As I cradle her small dead body the door bursts open. A group of monsters rush through and scream in a horrifying screech “Police! Put your hands up!”.

The bumps on my skin, the looks from my kin
I don't know what's real, and I feel it again
I'm out of my mind, but I'm stuck inside
I say I'm fine, but I've crossed the line

Everything is all clear, and sharp is my knife
Blood smeared face, and pupils big as a dime
Sweaty red hands, I circle in place
I look in my mirror, and laugh at my face

Don’t worry it's just a case,  of

I'm never alone, I’m alone in my mind
They say it's ok, its only a matter of time
I hate this feeling, it makes me alive
Is it better to live, or is it better to die?

I feel psychotic, I fear for your life
Do you fear me, or do you feel alright
I take my pills, I say goodnight
I hope I don't, have to say goodbye

Don't worry it’s just a case, of

When the light
Gets dim and the love
Unfolds and with the blacket we slept
Is made up of coal

All the love I seek
Is not meant for me, and
They say my destiny
Is pure misery

I need to be with you
I need to hide the truth
Don't wanna to look behind
Because my demons are all alive

My goal is so pure
But I got blood on the floor
I've got save you again
I gotta do it again

When I feel your heat
My heart just skips a beat
You're the only thing left inside
You are my only light

When your friends go away
Please don't think about how
Remember you're all that's left inside
You are my only light
