mental tormoil lyrics – coercion

inner conflict
me against my thoughts
i fought and lost

chaos reigns
my mind is under siege
nowhere is safe
inside of me
– my worst enemy

stuck in a mental trap
i lost control

my raging thoughts
hate and despise me
nothing in me
wants me alive

i’d give all my blood
for a moment of peace

staring at my reflection
an image i don’t recognise
i’m a stranger to myself

open my eyes
– tell me who i am
tear me open
– show me what’s inside
is there anything left
of what was me?
