Living in my skin
It's like a severe drug addiction

It becomes lethal in the long run
It's a destruction that can't be undone

I am my own reaper
I am my own savior

A scythe is my cross
This blasphemy cannot be stopped

Only those with true despair
Can wield this type of fear

For those who are born in sorrow
Know how to deal with living so hollowed

I had to cast aside my weak point of view
Because there are no demons nor angels

I am my own villain
I am my own hero

Although my perceptions of light and dark
Mean nothing to my already tainted heart

I know reality is what it needs to be
I know there was no hope for someone like me

I can't justify fate with destiny
I can't prevent the ending to my story
Dying in my skin
Is like a long awaited revolution

It was worth all of the praying
It was worth all of the suffering

For I am my own martyr
For I am my own slayer
It may seem cruel
But that's just one point of view

Take a walk in someone else's shoes
Then try and define what's really "strong" to you
