There must be a better place than this

Where it's all sweet and light

Smiles and laughs

Where all feels right


There must be a better place than this

Where tears don't fall

Shining lights and happy stars

And fear doesn't call


There must be a place

Where it ain't lonely

It ain't dark

Must be a place

Where smiles are easy

Laughter sounds high

From the swings in the park


A place 

Where corners aren't there

No hiding... No pleading

It's all free 

No cages in mind


~ No ropes, no blades

No blood in the mat

No broken piece, no hidden wound

No bodies on the ground


~ No faked smiles, no full sleeves 

With wrists slit open

No dried tears and blacken eyes

No force to stay sane


~ No broken dreams, no silent screams

No scared selves, no closet homes

No burnt face, no pages torn

No scratch on the skins 


Let's dream... Dream of a place that's sane

And break...let's break those cages in the head

And free those wrists of full sleeves


We're a little bit broken, and a lot more lost

But let's try to fly

How much it'll cost? 

Maybe a little more blood, one more scratch on the skin

More dried tears and a few more screams? 

But it's okay, I guess

To stumble and fall

To let the fears crawl

And to cry in the shower

And to hide behind the stall

It's the way we cope

It's the way we hope... 

Of a place that's better 

Where it's all sweet and light

Smiles and laughs

Where all feels right


So put the blades back on the shelf

Or maybe drain it down 

Untie the rope you made

From your favorite gown

Cut the sleeves short

And let those wrists breathe free

Who knows how much day's left

Maybe one, maybe two or maybe only three... 


So let's search and search more


There must be a place

Better than this

Where tears don't fall

Shining lights and happy stars

And fear doesn't call


~ No ropes, no blades

No blood in the mat

No broken piece, no hidden wound

No bodies on the ground


Must be a place... 

We must find

Where corners aren't there

No hiding... No pleading

It's all free 

No cages in mind


So keep searching...

Maybe we can find it

Behind those cages 

Or buried under the broken, torn heart? 

Let's just search

And free all chains

And leave them burnt

Then maybe we'll find

The address of the place

Make it our little secret

Our treasure hunt..!!
