You have learned that these days
Innocence is hard to find
Between the contrast of black to white
An expansion of misleading motives
Where no one cares what is wrong
And what is right

You're just a shell of the former you
From the outside no one can tell
The inner battles you've been through
The ideas that have dragged you to hell
Every now and then I see a part of a former you


Hiding behind your smile
A shadow of doubt
What in this life could be worthwhile?
Mind racing to find purpose
But returning empty handed
Complete lack of passion
This is not what you had planned

You're just a shell of the former you
From the outside no one can tell
The inner battles you've been through
The ideas that have dragged you to hell
Every now and then I see a part of a former you


How has it come to this?
Sweet dreams have become deranged nightmares
Keeping you from the peaceful escape you crave

Enclosed in a cage you built around yourself
Unheard screams echoing back in your face
Begging for someone to notice... begging for help

You're just a shell of the former you
From the outside no one can tell
The inner battles you've been through
The ideas that have dragged you to hell
Every now and then I see a part of a former you
I haven't put these words to music yet, but I have an idea.
This is something very different from my other songs.
