I put my hands over my ears,
closed my eyes and sighed.
I can't listen anymore
I have to find somewhere to hide.

I can't deal with this right now
This noise that makes me cringe.
If I listen to one more word,
I'm going to become unhinged.

The sounds, they become louder,
I almost can't hear my thoughts.
I have to find a way to stop this,
my stomach is all in knots.

I know I have to face it
It's time to stand up strong
wow, that voice - it's getting quieter
why did I wait so long?

Maybe I thought it'd go away
it wouldn't bother me any longer
but I had to take matters into my own hands
and now I am getting stronger

That voice, those sounds,
are fading away
the sky is now changing to blue
and I get to speak today

So take your words, your thoughts
put them back where they belong
what's best for me is inside
I should have trusted it all along
