Jack in a Box *Re*

Iíve seen things that should not be
and Iíve just lost my mind
I look into the glass
but itís half empty
and you wonder why
life was never funny to me
because Iím not your ragged toy
why canít I just let it go?
because you made it perfectly clear
that youíd rather see me in solitude
and waste away my years

I thought my dreams stretched like the ocean
but all this time I was trapped in a box
sometimes I hate to face reality
when all is dark Iím a freak
surrounded by walls that suffocate me
I was never perfect by no oneís standards
but after so many years I calmed down and wanted peace
seems like no one really cares what this means

you push me to the edge till I let go
made it all about you when it was never your business
with all the sick monsters out there I was never half as twisted
so Iím lost in this solitude you created
what is my existence?
a box surrounding my own heart that I canít make go away!!
