Bend

Itís second nature to pretend
Iíve been waiting since God knows when
For a miracle; a sign of absolute wonder
Yet Iím being held back to stop and ponder.

Iím wide awake; the dawnís just breaking
All these intrusive thoughts are a dead-end
I numb this pain; itís my soul thatís gaining
You can put me through hell, but my will wonít bend.

Iím an elastic band at this point
Iíve been stretched far beyond my capability
These once forgotten thoughts; theyíre now impossible to avoid
As Iím lectured on the importance of responsibility.

Iím done with this shit, yet Iím spared no mercy
How can I achieve any reprieve?
When youíre breathing down my neck; oh, the worry!
Donít you dare gaslight me when I try to leave.

Iím wide awake; the dawnís just breaking
All these intrusive thoughts are a dead-end
I numb this pain; itís my soul thatís blazing
You can beat me half to death, but my will wonít bend.

Itís second nature to pretend
Iíve been waiting since God knows when
For a miracle; a divine intervention
I eagerly await for a taste of heaven.
