Eyedea lyrics : "Even Shadows Have Shadows"

I stand alone
Burned every bridge over the troubled water
No longer hiding from my personality disorder

A stronger tide is coming, I've been running
trying to function fine with out my mind
climbing out this $#&@ing corner

I was born a thorn away from the rotten petals

A forgotten rebel

craft in the absence of heaven's heavy hands to develop an evident level of benevolence
so it's probably better I sold my soul to the devil

This is a message to anyone I met that thinks they know me
Don't pretend to understand none of the issues that I'm holding
I was in a rush to grow up, look Mom no cuts

Just a stomach in disgust, and the fear
that I might go nuts this year
If I don't slow up I'll see you on my way

One day this %#@!'ll kill me but I guess that it's OK
I've lost all faith in a world so full of hate
and I don't $#&@ing love music I just use it to escape

I'm caught between wanting to punch someone in the face
and putting a bullet in my head to leave the human race
Everything takes its toll but there's no tolls I can take

I haven't yet found a good reason to be awake
Introducing the corroded bumps I hide behind my smile
I'm angry at the universe for the way she treats me now

And keeps me down,

stealing all my energy
I'm feeling like my enemy, concealing my identity
Not dealing with my tendencies,

I peel the skin and then I squeeze
The real imprinted hand cause he's
not human in this century,

I'm kneeling to the entity
Who built this penitentiary,
as filthy as a centipede

And guilt was in his sense cause he was willing to just let me bleed, While I wore a game face
In 10 years don't check for me I'll be in the same place
This planet's just an over-populated mental hospital

Each zombie walk around constitutes another obstacle
So here it is I'm finally coming out my shell
All 19 years of my life have been in conflict with myself

I'm insecure by every facet of my existence
From my addictions, to the condition I choose to live in
Who you kidding?

I suffer from excess anxiety
A product of pollution in American society
Stare into my eyes and see the hell that burns inside my mind

and I no longer have an ego I can hide behind
but I've been trying disregarding my insanity
Every form of art isolates us from humanity

But it's provoked against being force fed
so $#&@ education for a decade and 3 years
of headaches from my peers

Cause now I realize I could have learned more on my own
They taught me how to know everything except my soul
Which is everything I need to grow

Everything that keeps me whole
Everything that ever meant anything to Eyedea
So I leave with golden hopes

to rip the leash that holds my focus
but the fact remains the same, I'm still bound by chains
It doesn't matter if your chain is 10 ft or 100 ft

The fact remains the same, you're still bound by chains
Some people say I've changed, and it's harder to relate to me
Good, I never liked you our friendship was make believe

I'm peeling the mask back and
revealing the rap that's been
Feeling my organs drilling short distorted portions

of morbid acid keeps the torture unfortunately crafted
interests to orbit my portrait and inflict my image with disorder
The minutes get shorter, the walls start to close in

Feels like the brain is hanging on by one clothes pin
I've hidden in the darkness for too long
I make it look all right but on the inside it's all wrong
I want life to change but I don't know if it can
for a man or machine or whatever the $#&@ I am

I stand alone burned every bridge over the trouble water
No longer hiding from my personality disorder
You want to die in my life?
then come and stay in madness' favorite little corner

Cause even shadows have shadows
and my secrets are eating me eagerly feeding
I scream in my dreams away but they keep on defeating me
Even Shadows have Shadows
Welcome to the dusty subconscious of an actor

Who murdered his childhood to stop the audience's laughter
Even Shadows have Shadows
How am I to break free from my fears
When I don't like what I see and I can't feel what I hear
Even Shadows have Shadows

So don't judge my book by it's cover
Cause my story's just $#&@ed up as any other
