If I let you see

Some parts of my history

Would they set me free

Wiping clean the deeds

See flowers disguised as weeds

Drink blood the soul bleeds

Blinded by the shame

Memories screaming my name

Silence, play the game

Help me to save face

Vanquishing nightmares that chase

Seeking love’s pure grace
