I need to travel alone
I need to travel completely and entirely by myself

Are you sure?
I mean, who will ever be sure to be so alone?
The voices are too loud when nobody else is talking, right?

But I need to travel alone
I need to travel completely and entirely by myself
I need to make peace with the voices in my head

Aren’t you afraid? Aren’t you insecure? Wouldn’t you be so lonely?
Afraid, insecure and lonely I’ve felt my whole life being surrounded by people
Maybe I’ll feel less alone when I find my freedom

But, honey, the unknown is so frightening
Wouldn’t at night everything seem so evil?
I’m not sure, I mean, nothing is more chilling than sleeping with your demons

So I need to travel alone
I need to travel completely and entirely by myself
Partly because I want to
But desperately because I need to
