lyrics

There’s a battle within myself

I am not real – I am words upon paper
I am theory and conjecture, I am talk without action
I am regret, ‘cause I am not there yet
I’m a work in progress

I have a good heart, but to see me you wouldn’t know it
Seems I rarely choose to show it – seems I’ve got two sides, I’m fighting with myself
And I’m not winning
I’ve seen this before

I’m fighting myself, and I’m always losing
I know what is right, but I rarely do it
I’ve got places to go, but will I ever get there?
It’s anyone’s bet

Projecting an image, it is lies and filters
It is edited highlights, it is everything I want you to see
But I have a confession
None of that is me

We live in an age where it gets harder to make connections
I’m talking blood and tears relations, talking real life and not just
Dramatics, sensational headlines
Purest fantasy

It seems impossible
It seems like I’ll never break through
Forever tested and forever failing
How can I get through to you?
