Nobody said this would be easy
But that’s the biggest understatement of the century
And even after Two Years On
None of these fears are gone at all, if anything, they’re multiplying

Can’t get rid of this shake, lying awake every night
I’m in a constant fight between my head and my heart
And I know this music is my gift
But the compulsion for making it is tearing me apart

And it’s quickly getting dark

And before I knew it
Reality came crushing down like a meteor shower
Seems I’m facing my extinction
No use to run and hide
No choice left but to fight
So grab a bat and start swinging for your life

All the lights are fading out
And I’m banging on walls in the dark hoping to find a door
Anxiety’s closing in, the sky is falling again
And I’m screaming PLEASE NO MORE

I’m sick of wearing these fake smiles
Just want to sing against bathroom tiles trying to conjure up the next sound
But self-esteem is sinking down
Gotta to keep my head above water again before I surely drown

And I’m sure to drown

Be the change, beat the flames, break the chain it’s overrated

Powerful track, both personal and catchy! I feel I'm running out of words with all these parallel comments but on all of this but: gotta comment. Hope you get this topping the charts here on NG too!
