For the Barely Coping

In between I see it
I don't know why
But I need it
I woke up in a cage
But it's fine
I was born in it
In a lifeless room
I was made from it
Losing touch in the world
Don't we all do?
We might fall soon
But that's not permanent
Don't give up

Ever heard of it
Of course, you do
But do you do it
Know I do
But every time I see it
Behind you
Your demons taunting you
You keep crying
Stop Crying
Think you can't win
your lying

You're holding the keys
Open the lock doors
To get yours
I got mine
Then you'll be fine
