A poem about how my mind sometimes talk to me to trick me. It's more like a lyric to a song, but I have no music for it yet.

You know me well, we’ve been together since childhood

I’ve been there for you and I know what you’ve been through

I’ve felt your pain and I’ve shared your guilt

I’ve never judged you and I love you still

We've been through so much, we're inseparable

We can't be apart for too long, it's just inevitable

For better or worse, in sickness and death

Together, forever until we take our last breath

You know you need me, can't make it on your own

Look at where we are now, how much we have grown

You owe it all to me, working night and day

I helped you close your eyes and I took away the pain

I'm the chemical storm, dragging you along

How long till you realize that you were never alone

You feel me always by your side prowling like a shadow

So, wherever you may go, know that I will always follow

You can't lock me away forever, you can't push me aside

Your soul's my home, my shelter, it's where I reside

Where I call all the shots and I guide your whole life

Because I'm the parasite… that lives inside your mind

 

Help me get through another day

Just grab my hand and take me away

Clean the stains that I have inside

My beautiful ugly parasite

 

Don’t think, just let me do all the work for you

No sense questioning why your sky is not blue

Give me the keys to your vault, let me in into your brain

To your thoughts to your soul, to the things that keep you sane

I take care of every little thing that keeps you up at night

I will cling to your fears and won't go without a fight

You can't deny me or ignore me, I'm just too real

You can't back out now, you can't forget our deal

I guide you, I save you, I help you when you're down

I can make you smile when your life is just a frown

I will feed from your distress, getting stronger every day

You might feel regret today but tomorrow you'll be OK

Now I promise you this, with blood on my hands

I will keep you from falling down, keep you safe from harm

If you just surrender your freedom and your will

I will make sure that your soul will never feel

Sadness and frustration will all be in the past

But you can’t delay, there’s no time, we have to move fast

You need to let go and leave yesterday behind

Because I’m the parasite… that lives inside your mind

 

Help me get through another day

Just grab my hand and take me away

Clean the stains that I have inside

My beautiful ugly parasite
