Hold Me Down (Demo)

Tear the fabric of my mind
Imagine what you cannot hold
Memories you cannot find
Can you save them from the fold?
Fading as your soul decays
You look for someone else to blame
Packing decades into days
Ignoring all your shame

Hold me down... If you can
But you can't... So go away
Hold me down... Mess with my mind
I now believe... That you will stay

You take everybody in
They don't even recognize
Nobody can see within
Your intentions you now hide
I'm guilty of the mistake
Trusting those in whom I care
All your feelings, they were fake
Go to hell! I'm already there...

Hold me down... If you can
But you can't... So go away
Hold me down... Mess with my mind
I now believe... That you will stay

They destroyed your self esteem
So you believed it would be right
To play games with the unseen
Of the few that gave you light
Now look who you've taken down
To the depths you fell before
Stolen all my solid ground
Padlocked every single door

Hold me down... If you can
But you can't... So go away
Hold me down... Mess with my mind
I now believe... That you will stay
