I can't move, I can't sleep
I can't eat, I can't breathe without pain
I feel weak, I feel trapped
I feel tired, I feel sapped once again
I am done, I am gone
I am spent, I am drawn to the brink!

Every time this happens, I lose the ground I've gained
If this is what my life is, complaints can't be contained
Be contained!

I'm beat down, I'm held up
I'm held down, I'm beat up
Is there nothing I can do?
I'm led right, I'm pulled wrong
I'm pushed right, I'm dead wrong
if I admit that I am through

I was strong, I was me
I was whole, I was free without pain
I want hope, I want time
I want health, I want life once again
I need help, I need you
I need peace, I need to live again

Every time this happens, I should be more aware
It's nothing I can't handle even though it seems unfair
So unfair!

I'm beat down, I'm held up
I'm held down, I'm beat up
Is there nothing I can do?
I'm led right, I'm pulled wrong
I'm pushed right, I'm dead wrong
if I admit that I am through

Evaluating, complicating, accelerating to the brink
Accumulating, calculating, substantiating at the brink
Negotiating, meditating, separating on the brink
Retaliating, isolating, evaporating from the brink
Hallucinating, regulating, medicating to the brink
Disintegrating, speculating, fluctuating at the brink
Concentrating, navigating, suffocating on the brink
Operating, supplicating, liberating from the brink

I have faith, I have will
I have strength, I have still to overcome
I won't stop, I won't break
I won't lose, I won't take anymore
I will stand, I will fight
I will try, I will right what is wrong

Every time this happens, I know what I derive
I always receive strength from you that helps me to survive
To survive!

I'm beat down, I'm held up
I'm held down, I'm beat up,
but there's something I can do
I'm led right, I'm pulled wrong,
I'm pushed right, I'm dead wrong
if I think I won't pull through
