I would certainly love to escape
but all the problems are inside my head
so I desperately try to escape myself
by building a world of my own

and sheltering myself
from issues and emotions
by building walls and walls

I try to escape my problems
by pretending they don't exist
by blocking them out
by attempting to live

and for every problem I have
and for every feeling I get
I build the walls up
higher and higher

nothing will come through now
and I'll finally be free
well, maybe not
but I'll pretend to be

But I'm covered in scars
that I cannot escape
can't run away from my thoughts
can't get out of my brain

well, there's a way
to run away
from myself
forever

would they call me a coward?
ungrateful?
insane?

none of that matters, as long as I'm dead.
