Stains of the mind you can’t fix with bleach
The mark is in sight, but it’s always out of reach
Scar tissue of the consciousness, but we know it doesn’t heal
We claim we’ve fixed the problem, but it’s a numbness that we feel.
Expect to be strong, when the wounding makes you weak
It’s like using a broken paddle while paddling up creek
You wouldn’t understand unless you felt the same
The haunting images that completely control your brain
There’s no escape for those who have to suffer
But never give up when your whole world is a little tougher.
Spreading your pain to all of those who care
Isn’t a pain your loved ones should have to bare.
