Grave Lying

pain = creation

Well good to know I can still cry. As much as I tried to stop it last night it still happened. Things I valued brought down, personal issues brought up, and I could see the end of it all. And what did I do to make myself feel better? Took some morbid quizzes, one of which I'm not gonna post cause things are never as bad as they used to be and I'm never going there again, not if I can help it, so it won't help to plague others with the thoughts in my head. Mind you after shedding the odd tear to Sarah McLachlan today I came to realise something that was happening as well last night, that I was monitoring things to be creatively inspirational. Look at it from both aspects, artists usually do their best works out of depression, and in life - well life is born from pain. So I have been writing today, funnily enough something just happens to coincide with things I made up which was great to find out. And for me who happens to be looking back at this and going "huh?" it's the celebration of 2024.

You could be right and I'll be real
Honesty won't be a pain you'll have to feel
'Cause i don't need your approval to find my worth
I've been trapped inside of my own mind
Afraid to open my eyes cause of what I'd find
And I don't want to live like this anymore

There goes my pain
There goes my chains
Did you see them falling
There goes this feeling it has no meaning
There goes the world off of my shoulders
There goes the world off of my back
There it goes

Does it scare you that I can be something different than you
Would it make you feel more comfortable if I wasn't
You can't control me
And you can't take away from me who I am

There goes my pain
There goes my chains
Did you see them fall
And there goes this feeling that has no meaning
There goes the world off of my shoulders
There goes the world off of my back

You can't change me
You can't break me

There goes the world off of my shoulders
There goes the world off of my back

Have you ever felt like your only comfort was your cage
You're not alone I have felt the same as you
Have you felt like your secrets give you away
You're not alone I have been there too
Everyone is looking and everyone is laughing
Everyone feels the same
Everybody wants to feel okay
Everybody wants to
Everybody wants to feel

There goes my pain
There goes my chains
Did you see them fall
And there goes this feeling that has no meaning
There goes the world off of my shoulders
There goes the world off of my back

'Cause I don't want it, I don't want it
You can't change me you can't break me
There goes the world off of my shoulders
There goes the world off of my back
There it goes
