Losing My Mind

my mind is my enemy

my brain is my enemy.

my mind is my enemy.

the voices are against me

my eyes will always deceive me

my emotions deceive me

my eyes deceive me

my mind is against me

my mind is my plague

in this world, my mind is my greatest enemy

I am my greatest enemy.

my mind lies to me

my mind tells me up is down

my mind is against people

it tells me others are plotting against me

I'm drowning in a sea of voices.

the voices become overwhelming

I'm drowning, suffocating in paranoia

I'm tortured. I'm beaten.

blinded by absolutes

I'll never know the truth
