A Lonely FortressDead,Straight-ahead,Matte eyes kept blank; void.Movements smooth,robotic, planned,Just blend in and avoid.I can't just keep giving away,but I also can't let them know.So I offer my help to those who need, and keep the dark inside.'So easy now, to hold it in,barriers grown to be so thick.A lonely fortress in which to hide.But it's alright,I'll be fine,watch the clouds and forget the day.Or read a book,or hold her tight,cause you'll never really get away.
StandAnd I sit and watch,As they all waste the days ahead,My mouth may smile, but my eyes are dead.They're all speaking but there's no words said.They're all reading but there's no words read.And I sit and watch.And I sit and watch,As you continue to feign your joy,You're laughing along but its all a ploy.Don't let yourself be their useless toy.I understand; I'm not just some boy.But I sit and watch.And I sit and watch,As you keeping taking all the blows,At night, alone, yours tears still flow."I'm fine as long as no one knows."But I can see your cuts: they show.So I'll stand.And I'll stand,I'll help you back onto dry land,You won't just be just another brand,You're a diamond, not another grain of sand.Your knives won't meet your other hand.And I'll stand.
