I‘m an expert at acting asleep
trained to breath in deep
All these nights I‘ve laid alone
listening to the others sleepy moans

You've condemned me to a dream-filled sleep
making me learn secrets I cannot keep
let my mind be filled with dark
stop scarring me, don‘t leave a mark

As my mind derails down memory lane
half-asleep I remember those days
days of desperation and drained energy
years of wishing I could break free

I was brought up by rage and fear
he pops a pill and the sky‘s are clear
Keeping this secret is keeping me
I'm a hostage in my own head

For I cannot tell anyone the way it makes me really feel.
