FOR THOSE WHO HAVE WON A BATTLEBE IT DEPRESSION ILLNESS OR STRIFE

DEDICATED TO THOSE WHO HAVE WON A BATTLE

BE IT DEPRESSION ILLNESS OR STRIFE

YOU STALKED ME IN THE DARK

LIKE A MUDERER IN THE PARK

I NEVER KNEW YOU WERE THERE

TIP TOEING AROUND WITH SUCH CARE

TEARINGALL MY DEFENSES DOWN

YOU THOUGHT YOU WORE A GOLDEN CROWN

BUT YOU MISJUDGED THE FIGHTING ME

MY SENSE OF SURVIVAL HAS SET ME FREE

WHEN I FELL TO THE GROUND

PAINFULLY SLOWLY I FOUND

THERE IS NO FUTHER I CAN FALL

SO TO THE TOP I WILL CRAWL

OUT OF THIS DEPRESSIVE HELL

I WILL LEARN TO DANCE AND YELL

PEOPLE THINK I HAVE GONE MAD

BECAUSE I FEEL SO GLAD

NO LONGER DO YOUHAVE THE POWER

TO MAKE ME CRY BE ILL AND COWER

THIS LIFE IS MINE AND I WILL LIVE

I HAVE SO MUCH MORE TO GIVE
