Two Steps Forward

  October 25th, 2011 by breaking_the_cycle

Watching my life, like a slow motion disaster

This merry go round starts spinning faster and faster

And I can’t help but feel, like the walls are closing in

And my bright side has now gone dim

I’ve felt this way for so long, ┬ábut everyone says, I’ve got it wrong

Well, this disaster is epic in scale

And now I’ve set myself up to fail

Two steps forward, one hundred back

No strength in me left to attack

I swallow my pride and this mouthful of lies

I’d tell you the truth, but I don’t have the words

Still choking on pride, I take a look deep inside

The emptiness that lies within

My heart becomes the victim

Two steps forward, one hundred back

No strength in me, left to attack

Now I won’t look you in the eyes

I’m afraid you’ll realize

How lost I am inside

The only thing, you need to know

All the love I failed to show

It doesn’t mean I didn’t care

Just goes to show, the depths of my despair

Two steps forward, one hundred back

No strength in me to repel this attack

I lie down, and embrace my fate

Don’t try to save me, you know it’s too late
