The voices scream words at me
Coldness always caresses my skin
Fear is injected into my body's veins
I loose track of where all I've been
They coax and plead me to join them
I fight back and never win
I'm denied my choice of freedom
I ready myself to sin
The scratching against my skull
feels as if it might crack shortly
Getting me to this point was easy
making it feel so courtly
I follow as they lead me
The cliff is high and I lose my breath
I dive off toward the dark waters
Understanding I had no choice left
