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.
