i live in this prison of fear

my mental straightjacket keeps me bound

the walls of this cell were built with my pain

and the bars are my insecurities

the guards all wear my face

they snear at me as i cry out for help

i know i must  break out of this place

and even though the keys are pressed firmly in my hand

i am trapped and cannot escape
