Hello...(hello)...(hello)...
Can anybody hear me...(hear me)...(hear me)...
Won't you come unlock this jacket...(jacket)...(jacket)...
There's no reason to fear me...(fear me)...(fear me)...

Come closer to the windows, take a peek inside
and if you look deep enough you'll see the pain I try and hide
I'm locked up in this mask hoping I might forget my face
because the memory of who I was I can't seem to erase
I wear a volatile smile behind shiny duct-tape
I swallowed the keys to the shackles hoping I never escape
I curl in the corner as the darkness falls
and bang my head again within these padded walls
Sedated, medicated, implicated in a crime
Detrimental mental health has me doing hard time
You see, my mind tells me I'm mad with a recurring condition
and so I stay locked away because I'm under suspicion
for not conforming to societal ways
Once we rain the pain we are the castaways
A schoolboy's giggle rings hollow in my ears
as the fears from the years of the tears bring the cheers
and build me up to the sadly-ever-after
I can't have manslaughter without man's laughter
"I see a red door and I want it painted black..."
and so I pray for the day that my heart comes back

So powerful....that last line really says it all...

Intense. When I see that you've posted something I always know I've got a treat coming, and this one is no exception.
