"Inside of Me". Lyrics by Joe Noel.《☆♤☆》.____. "I got away and I'm gonna share with yah.
The long gone days of mine and the wherewithal.
To break free of the devil and them rusty chains.
The food, the mouth, and the living and the pain.
Mine is a story of no sacrifice.
I did what I did, if not I did it twice.
I was no good down and dirty dealing.
And no that don't hurt any of my feelings.
I was a agent that drank from the bottle.
How much I drank, well that's impossible.
Most people said I was better off dead.
I proved them wrong; in my heart, in my head.
I am a man born undone and the rage in the cage.
The bottomless pit; it's all the same.
The Angels deny me as they have cried
As I sit here in my cell, no one replies.
Alone again in the darkness and the wind.
Or so the story goes, a man living with his sin.
A ball and chain to bare inside of me.
Shackled to it with no brass key to see.
The thunder and the rain.
The body and the brain.
The truth it can hurt.
Believe me it's my curse.
I burned down my life and spread on out the ashes.
The same way I lived, my life was a disaster.
I write this story as it pains me well.
To drag myself back from my living hell.
Redemption is clean and it goes unseen.
Where recompense is rare; in my life I didn't care.
A challenge was made upon me one little old night.
I woke understanding there was no end in sight.
The damage once done cannot be undone.
The scars so old; has the devil really won?
I think upon my life so old.
Why now do I get a chill from the cold?
Deep down in me is the body of truth and the pain to please.
I look now down upon the broken glass and pleas on the knees.
I ask for what I do not deserve anything more or anything less.
I know what I must do to get over all of this.
Hold my head high and be proud of where I'm from.
Be passionate and bold for what I want.
Courage and determnation are what lives in me.
The power to become whatever I may need.
No more will I put my mind to the test.
Each day I live, I deserve no rest.
I am the sanity that lurks deep in my head.
It knocks me down and leaves me for dead.
