Reflection

Hand over heart
As I try to breathe away the scars
Cutting into me like a knife
The enemy
Is someone anyone can see
And she wants to take my life

Won't stop at anger
Won't stop at screaming into the night
She thirsts for danger
She thirsts for blood dripping from the knife

Sometimes she who stares back at me
Sees me clearer than I can see myself
But why is my reflection
So bent on spilling lies
Like it tries so hard to waste my life

Feet underground
I'm moving but I'm losing ground
To the flaws that eat me alive
The enemy
Is back and taking hold of me
She's not afraid to use the knife

Won't stop at hurting
Won't stop at staring at my broken skin
She thirsts for bleeding
She thirsts for pain to end the pain I am in

Sometimes she who stares back at me
See me clearer than I can see myself
But now my reflection
Is bent on spilling lies
Like its bent on wasting my life

I'm bleeding out
In more ways that one
And by the time
I realize just what I've done
She's already laughing
'Cause she's already won
By the blood on the blade of the knife

Sometimes she who stares back at me
Sees me clearer than I can see myself
But now my reflection
Is bent on telling lies
Like it tries to make me waste my life

Don't let her win
Hand over heart
Time to begin
Letting time heal the scars
I'll keep my skin
Holding all my blood within
This time
I'm holding onto to life

This time
I'm holding onto life
