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!
