I'm On, Then Right Back Off Again

I'm on then right back off again

Trying to get the thoughts in my head straightened back out again

They're running rampant while I'm banging on the door screaming “let me in!”

I only looked away once and this is how far I slid?

A vicious cycle. Delusion, denial, sin.

I'm just trying to begin without ending

I'm just praying for a win

I'm running low on faith to defend me

I just know this can't be it

I'm on then right back off again

Where do I start? Why can't I stop?

All these reminders screaming “remember when?”

End, ended, endings.

Begin, begin, begin
