I lost my shit and found myself.
Sick of doubting my mental health.
Beginning to live like the end times.
And I'm so sorry I apologized
for thinking, for seeing, for reading
The writing on the wall... Erase it all.
I learned my fucking lesson...
And now I press on...

Calling out my doubts.
My self esteem is on the line. Keep my chin up doing fine.
Question all my thoughts.
My self worth is feeling cheap and in your dreams, I'm asleep.

Self-fullfilling prophecies. Come to expect whats coming to me.
So I'll smash my crystal ball. Ignore what I foresaw.
Yeah, here's to my misfortune and all the hopes that lie within...
My visions of tomorrow take root in today...

Tie a ribbon round my finger...
Then cross two behind my back...
Kid myself over and over...
Trust not. On the attack.
This is my cross to bear and I will aim through the crosshairs.
Easy target. Take my shot.
Mark my words. No truce is sought.
Images rattle inside my head...
Shaken up... Nauseous again.
This is the present... That I know...
And I think it's time I let it all go...
