I feel so empty and lifeless inside.
It's a big dark place where i love to hide.
My fears keep me trapped to my own seclusion.
They say it's safe come out but it's all an illusion.
There's pain and hurt and loneliness and tears.
These are all the things that I so deeply fear.
I'd rather be inside my dark lifeless place.
Where there's no one to hurt me no one to face.
I don't have to put on a smile to cover up my pain.
In here I'm accepted through sun or rain.
i go inside and disappear without a trace.
Because in here it's just myself for me to disgrace.
Just my empty core with no soul to call my own.
A deep place inside where i can be alone.
So to myself i say thank you for another day.
For keeping me safe and letting me stay.
