No Lie Worth Living (The Darkness Within)
Can’t you feel the walls closing in,
As you sink into your homemade abyss?
You lock the door and shut out the light.
You let the darkness hold you tight.
Slip away from the darkness within.
Why do you close yourself up inside?
Letting the anger and fear be your guide?
Television is a mindless machine.
Don’t let it tear your dreams at the seams.
(Look in the mirror)
Study the face that stares back at you.
Can you honestly say that these feelings are true?
Break down the walls of your protective shell.
And never look back at your personal hell.
SLIP AWAY FROM THE DARKNESS WITHIN.
