a common misconception.
i have a heart, and a soul, and a conscience.
i have control.
these bones are now breaking.
i have kept this secret buried.
i've kept it buried for so long.
i began to believe my own lies,
hiding my ugly face behind a smiling mask when my eyes show another truth.
these eyes show another truth.
i am a monster. i am the victim. i am two.
but which one will i choose?
this creature in my heart, oh please just make it stop.
this feeling is so foreign.
my mind is silent till the blood drops.
its over, this silence is over.
help me pick up the pieces.
the one you fought so hard to hide, the tortured soul.
the creature that you keep inside, it has taken control.
say goodbye to who used once knew.
i am the monster, the victim. i am two.
