so many before me have waged this war and lost
accusations fly like throwing knives
and all the while, this war you wage
originates in your brain...
"if I had no one to scream at,
I'd scream at myself"
the words leave your lips
like smoke pours from windows
in a house, full blaze.
I've spent my whole life fighting,
so all this smoke doesn't scare me away.
it simply leaves me wondering
whether I can conquer this
or end up just another casualty
along the way.
I hope to a god I don't even believe in that I can fight this fire and win.
