Tell me how long it's been  
Maybe I need to cry
Maybe I need to release this hurt
And let it take the route of my eyes

Because it cries from the inside
It screams until it hurts
It screams until it's lost its voice
And even crying burns

It cries to be released
And bangs upon my walls
It scratches, bites, and tears at my skin
But not even then do I answer its call

I'm waiting for it to drown me
For the day it devours me whole
For the day I can't seem to sleep it away
And I finally loose control
Let it out
