All I Want is My Mind Back

.

Demon depression,

Take your bleak, dark self

Somewhere else.

Take your hell on earth

Far away from me.

.

This hopeless, helpless

Feeling’s got to go

Somewhere else

So the sun can shine

Back into my mind.

.

Demon depression.

It’s past time to leave.

Let me be

So I can become

Who I’m meant to be.
