There Is A Way

No more saying i will stop tomorrow.
No more sad tears and sorrow.
No more ridiculous amounts of money.
No more thinking this is just funny.
No more lies and stories.
No more apologies and sorries.

This is the end of it all.
this is the end of my long fall.
This is coming to a stop.
This is the end of my long drop.
This is how my story is told.
This is the end of my pain and cold.

From this point on I am done.
From this point on I am no longer glum.
From this point on I say no more.
From this point on I will only soar.
From this point on I will be pure.
From this point on I have found my cure.

The entity no longer has a hold on me.
The entity no longer is able to see.
The entity no longer has any say.
The entity no longer will see another day.
The entity no longer tells me what to do.
The entity no longer has the slightest clue.

From this moment forth I will survive.
From this moment forth I will have the drive.
From this moment forth I will be strong.
From this moment forth I will live long.
From this moment forth I will say no.
From this moment forth I will run the show.

So this is how my story goes.
So this is for anyone who knows.
Just how strong this entity can be.
Just how hard it is to flee.
There is a way to rid of this dark force.
There is a way to find your happy source.
