Tempted to fall into cynical
Child Inside, I'm back again,
Praying for strength to my feathered friend

Falling felt bliss
Crawled on skin, lick on lips
Child Inside, please hear my plea
Maybe it was all a dream

Sweet, sweet, sweet humanity
You beautiful, volatile sea
My paradigm, my epitome
My child inside, don't give up on me
On that who I am
The who I can be

For hell is here on earth, in me
When doubt and fear I choose to see
And heaven is all of the lives
That choose to love over survive
I want to live, not just survive
I want heaven, not hell, before I die
I want heaven, my child inside

Silence tempting, years I couldn't sing
Child Inside, you kept music on
And one day, I prayed, I'd sing back along

Close to the edge,
No, I can't be done yet
Child Inside, my last innocence,
The uncanny was never coincidence

Sweet, sweet, sweet humanity
You beautiful, volatile sea
My paradigm, my epitome
My child inside, don't give up on me
On that who I am
The who I can be

For hell is here on earth, in me
When doubt and fear I choose to see
And heaven is all of the lives
That choose to love over survive
I want to live, not just survive
I want heaven, not hell, before I die
I want heaven, my child inside

I believe hell can end

For hell is here on earth, in me
When doubt and fear I choose to see
And heaven is all of the lives
That choose to love over survive
I want to live, not just survive
I want heaven, not hell, before I die
I want heaven, my child inside
