The devil on my shoulder tells me he's proud of me That it takes a real man to look out for himself and no one else I don't want to believe that But sometimes it's easier to just stay silent
I wish I knew how to speak out I never had a problem with words But only when talking to someone else There's a war inside me that's all my own And I need to talk like a king to keep myself afloat But how much longer until everyone knows?
There's a war inside me that's all my own There's a war inside me that's all my own
I should have started to take my own advice From the moment that I started giving it But I can only control what happens from here And if none of this had happened Then I couldn't have heard...
The angel on my shoulder tells me he's proud of me That it takes a real man to live for everyone else before himself I know I believe it And it'll never get easier But it will always be worth it
There's a war inside me that's all my own
I'm still learning to speak out against myself And stay on the path I truly want to be on Though I've lost my way more times that I have wished My heart is constant and willing
I still believe that we were made for more That what I've been doing lately This end of depression will be the start of getting back what I have lost Because I had become conceited But I'm making it back to where I last left off And so I've shown you my heart Will you restore me?
