721 Help Me [21 July 2005]

I lie in shadows
torn between what’s wrong
and what’s right.
Inside the cage of my heart,
truth begs to break through
the iron bars of my lips.
The key is held in my hand,
but that appendage only answers to pride
and I cannot unlock these chains
that bind me to the threshold of destruction,
to free the two words I beg to cry out.
