Hatred and sadness are my fathers
Pain and humiliation are my teachers
The voices inside me are my preachers.
Late one night I hear the call
To face the beast that's in us all
Into the pit of darkness I fall.
In my mind I step through a door
I look and see my mind at war
With tears in my eyes I say no more.
Slowly I walk through the battlefield
My mental barrier acting as a shield
When I find the monster I must not yield.
After awhile I come to its cave
My sanity I have come to save
But now I wonder if I am its slave.
For hours I fight with the beast
He does not fear me in the least
Upon my hatred he does feast.
When the battle is over I see the cost
My mind has become a holocaust
And although I have won in truth I have lost.
