Confidence in Confidence
Pains trapped inside my mind in this living hell.
Hopelessly projecting sickness with faith that I'll get well.
Many have no empathy and they never give.
Many have no sympathy from the lives they live.
Understanding me is a hard stretch for others to entertain.
My world is viewed an anomaly although we bleed the same.
I've tried it all... from the razors edge to doctors in my head.
and pride has kept me breathing, as I fill their hospital beds.
Many say to kill your pride is the only way to live with ease.
I say to have pride is the only way to conquer my disease.
Justin Ray Price & Stanley Victor Paskavich
