Suicide Of The Mind  

I've decided to kill a part of me
Not physically, oh no
I guess I could stomach the pain
That sense of letting go

It won't make much of a difference
I'm just planting a bomb in my head
I just have that urge to explode upstairs
To be something else instead

I've opted to put a gun to my mind
But my body will stay intact
The flesh of me will stay much the same
But the rest won't - that's a fact

You can't be what you want these days
When you are, there are consequences
I thought I might be going mad
And I never came to my senses

I never fully recovered from
The day that I went insane
My day to day activity
Doesn't match what I think with my brain

So it's time to plant the dynamite
In a very specific way
To shut me down, and switch me off
I concluded this today

That all I am isn't all that great
That I do not like myself
Years they changed so much of me
Clearly damaging my health

Yet the winds they blow as they always blow
So I pause, then I take a breath
Then I understand that it's not the end
Just a temporary death
