Confidence is a privilege
Permitted to the strong
If I had an ounce of self-esteem
I wouldnít be crooning this song
To myself in the dark
Where I am most afraid
That the reaper will ask a price
That cannot be repaid
I pretend that Iím apathetic
But I know that canít be true
When Iím feeling so much pain
Iíve been robbed of all virtue
I was so naÔve
Trusting and Forgiving
But that was when I was young
When I had life worth living
Thereís no point in trying anymore
My heart is fragile glass
I donít have the will to try anymore
My mind has become immoral and crass
I swear Iíd give anything
To have my old life back
But my eyes are completely blank
And Iíve forgotten how to laugh
Iím too weak to kill myself
Because I fear the same
Thought I know whatís coming
Because my life will stay the same
The emotion has become predictable
I know where Iíll be in the end
My family is finally recognizing it
And theyíll be smart enough to send
Me to the mental institution
Because I know thatís where I belong
Iím becoming impatient
Whyís it taking so long
I want to finally leave
I want to be educed with
Mind-numbing drugs
I want to be among my people
I want to be a slow-minded slug
I have no future
I lack the care
Iím cruel-minded
I have a blank stare
Who cares anymore
No one it seems
My only escapes
Are my tortured dreams
