lyrics

Institutionalised, I was locked in a cage
Taught what to believe, page by page
What's best for me, or so you thought
Never released no matter how hard I fought

Put to the test I put ink to page
Sleepless nights and endless days
I slip away I feel my body decay
I cannot keep living my life this way…

Judged against my peers
See if I fit your mould
Those who didn't never had any hope

I tried as hard as I could
You tried to offer a hand
But never had the time for us
Held hostage for twelve years
In a system made to crush

Found solace in substance to burn the chill away
Insecurities beginning to fade
Never thought I would slip below the line
Day-in, day-out, just a waste of time

Judged against my peers
See if I fit your mould
Those who didn't never had any hope
I'll go against the grain
I'm walking through the rain
I'm at the end of my rope

This is the start of the end
Destiny never needed a plan
"Stay on the path or live a life of regret"
I'll prove you wrong every chance I fucking get
