always at war with myself

always at war with myself
a constant battle
to march      
to the beat                     
of their drum.
 fighting a noble war, the away team            
 don't even know i am here.   
 things got to get better 
 fall in line, 
 don't cry your own tears 
  at night.          
 tried to play the game.
 lost the plot. got up. lost the plot.
 tried to make my world             
in my image.
 lower the defense stat,                                 
for i am defeated.
 take my pound of flesh,                          
ain't got no fight left.
 these war games,                
 forgot me how       
to dream.
