Motive Assessment

This song is by A Well Thought Tragedy and appears on the album The Persona (2007).

This morning I woke up in a jail cell
Next to an aluminum toilet and a pile of insecurities
I've never felt so small
I just thought that we were past this
Staring through the bars, sleeping on cinderblocks
My greatest fear is that I will never change
That I have become a criminal
Can you expel the urges? Can you let go for once? I ask myself these same questions over and over again
But I never know the answers
Even upon release I am held captive by my own thoughts and feelings
I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired
It's never ending
When will I regain enough strength to control my own defects? Can you expel these urges? Can you make me okay? No
No one can
Now I finally see
Serenity where are you now? Help me accept the things I cannot change
Give me the courage to change the things I can
And the wisdom to know the difference
I refuse to be like this forever
I refuse to be me
I want to be someone else
I want control
Teach me to turn my will over and surrender
There will always be prison bars
Sometimes real and sometimes in figment
I cannot always tell if they are locking me in or if they are locking me out
Why do I do this to myself?
