Everyday is a war for me
Even myself has turned on me
Pushing me into a hole of depression
Swallowing my mind in darkness

Every time I think I found the light
In it swoops enveloping me in the night
It's cold embrace never letting me escape
No matter how hard I try to be Houdini

I'm tired oh so tired
Of living in this hell I created
But nothing I do improves my life
Instead sending me plummeting further down
