Self-title by Nicholas Sollitto

You know that feeling you get
When you’re walking around
And you forget
That it’s just another person

But you see demons below the surface
Cutting into you with their eyes
They saw right through your disguise

You know that situation that arises
When you’re just trying to survive
But you have to hide it
From the one you love most

They’re all after me
I have so many plans
But there is a war in my mind
And shackles on my hands

Help me friends
I’m supposed to be free

A mental floatation device
But I’m 20,000 leagues under the sea
I don’t know who that masked figure will be
But I’m asking for my savior, please.
