The descent. Those same old voices are winning again and you feel all that held such promise is starting to sour and slip away again no matter how hard you try. It's about the anger you feel when you realize you're the master of your own demise but have no idea how to stop the cycle.


Hit the road, headed east
Still in search of inner peace
"Maybe today's the day..."
I say

What you think of me matters so
More than I'd care to show
All I do, I do for you
It's true

I again begin to feel displaced
But can my mind be changed
With a few more hollow victories?
We'll see

Why do I still feel so alone?
Is it something that I will outgrow?
Maybe then again I'll be inspired
To aspire

And take that leap of faith?
Find a better way?
See what I should've seen From the start?

There's days when it's all so clear
And not obscured by fear
What do I see...

But all that I've tried to hide
Once again swells inside
And as shadows wash over me
All I want to do is retreat
Struggle as I may try
Over time I've come to rely
So as my will dissolves
I fall

Again and again and again...

Try to fight it
As it draws near
But in the end
You are what you fear

Try to fight it
As it draws near
But in the end
You became what you fear

I'm becoming what I fear...
I've become what I fear
