I tried to outrun my demons,
but they snuck around the back way and headed me off at the curve
in a fierce ambush
I may as well have balanced a bucket of water on the head of a pin
because to shed your demons you'd have to shed your own skin
so if there's a way out of my skin
I'd like to know just what it is
I want a new language and a new tongue, a new strategy

cuz I tried to outrun my demons
it was like trying to catch a dark cloud with a butterfly net
it was like trying to walk across freshly fallen snow without leaving tracks
cuz the past has a way of coming back
so I'm gonna get to know these little demons
so I can know where they end and I begin
I'm gonna peel back that fine line
that divides me from my mind
if there's a way out of my skin
I'd like to know just what it is
I want a new language and a new tongue, a new strategy
