6) The Demon in Me

There's something in me,

Something that no one else can see.

It tries to break free,

Can you see the demon in me?


Whenever I'm all alone or in my room at night,

I fight my demon to stay.

It wants to be set free and see the light,

But I fight so it doesn't break away.


There's something in me,

Something that no one else can see.

It tries to break free;

Can you tell that there's a demon in me?


When someone gets close to me,

I'm afraid that they'll see,

So I hide the demon in me.


There's something in me,

Something that no one else can see.

Why can't you see the demon in me?


Whenever I'm sad and alone,

It wants to call my soul home.

Every time I tell it to be gone,

It says I'm home to devil spawn.


There's something in me,

Something that no one else can see.

Can anyone see the demon in me?


It hides just beneath the skin,

I'm afraid that I'm wearing thin.

But I would die before I let my demon win.


There's something in me,

Something that no one else can see.

It tries to break free.

Can you help me fight the demon in me?


I already know,

You're gonna say no.

Not only is the fight in me,

But you can't fight what you can't see.


There's something in me,

Something that no one else can see.

It tries to break free.

Can I escape the demon in me?


My only wish is to die in peace.

This fight is slowly killing me.

And no one sees it;

The demon in me.
