Beast Within

Somethings wrong
It's coming on strong
The beast howls at the gate
Unraveling my fate

It hides on the inside
Looking for its sweet escape
All the time its had to bide
To finally form into its shape

The monster within grows
Gaining power by the day
Life continues to amplify my woes
As my heart continues to decay

My heart is now frozen
The cage within now brittle and weak
The beast has been chosen
As all it has to do is speak

The cage breaks apart
And the beast is free
This is just the start
The start of an eternity

Is there a hero out there for me
Someone that can slay this beast
Is there a hero out there for me
Someone that can give me peace

The answer comes in fast
The beast doesn't stand a chance
Someone here at last
Destroying the beast with but a glance

My heart is finally free
Now on the road to recovery
I get down on one knee
And thank God for hearing my plea
