A Synthetic Soul

The Me Inside

All of my life, I've been constricted by authority.
I've been forced to be normal and limited to what I can be.
Well I'm tired of being just normal, and the life it comes to live.
I want to be who I really am, but first I have to find who that is.

I see myself as people see me, I don't know who I really am.
I want to find my inner self but I don't know if I can.
I feel a darkness inside that's been supressed for so very long.
I can feel it crawling to the surface. I can hear its call.

It wants to be released and free to do its will.
Why do I fight the way I do, why do I fight it still?
I feel the demons that you've awoken deep down inside of me.
For they're the root of my soul. They're the essence I am to be.

I cannot fight them any longer, I cannot live a lie.
This is what I've always been. No reason for me to hide.
No longer am I weak, or what you want me to be.
I am what I am, and that's who I'm going to be.

You cannot comprehend, still you're yet to see.
You'll never understand the hatred that's inside of me.
Your eyes are full of fear. Now you see the me inside.
Now you will feel the intensity when it's unleashed upon you tonight.
