You linger in my chest it's getting tight. You linger in my chest out of sight. Distract me from good thoughts, drown my soul. Distract me from the good life— I'm out of control. But I will crush you, Can't you see? I am the only one protecting me. I crush you in the palm of my hand, breaking you up into fine sand. I blow you into the wind— drift away. I can breathe now— I'm free to begin the new day. Free from your chains, wrapped too tight. Free from the torture you instill. You are only an emotion of which I control. I am the one with free will.
