Breaking Away TONIGHT

Your name is...fear
And you demand that I abide by your despair
~
I gave you everything that you have ever asked
And I never got a thing in return for ANY of that
But you still managed to continuously stab me in the back
~
Your name is...remorse
And you wish for me keep true to this damaging oath
~
I was nothing but a puppet; I was just your personal scapegoat
These sinister strings guided me to cast aside all forms of pride and hope
I considered us to be friends because you were all I used to know
~
Your name is...sorrow
And all you want is to darken the brightest tomorrow
~
I was your undying sacrifice; the one and only reoccurring offering
You had an unquenchable thirst for my untimely, man-made suffering
There's countless times where I put you before myself- it's so god-damn sickening
~
Your name is...tainted
And you believe that we are fated
~
I've remained here, behind your bars, locked up and shackled
I was a prisoner held captive, wrapped in chains and a straitjacket
Handcuffed and muzzled because you knew that one day I would try and change this
~
Your name is...corruption
And you desire for me to take on all your burdens
~
I was just a temporary cure for your demeaning curse
Stacking everything upon me, just so you wouldn't get worse
It was all for your own benefit, and it paid off, but I just couldn't take it anymore
~
Your name is...darkness
And you thrive on feeding off of my weakness
~
But I cannot-and-will-not allow you to create my end
I have my own morals, and I believe in my own aspiring dreams
So I'm going to be leaving you, because this is MY life...and this is MY creed
~
Your name will proudly be left behind
Because I'm going to be breaking away TONIGHT!
*Epic Halo Voice* BIRTHDAY RELEASE!

Thank you!
I have to apologize for the late, late, late response. DA deleted a lot of my notifications around this the time you commented. I'm just randomly going through my gallery and checking for unattended comments such as yours.

Again, thank you for your kind words. It really means a lot! ^_^

The picture for this reminds me of the theme song for Kamen Rider Kiva, it's called "Break The Chain". This is absolutely amazing, great work~

lol nope, it's more of a live-action-power rangers-ish series. It was made by the same people who brought us power rangers too actually. I advise you to check it out if you have the free time to, you might really like it! But in the meantime here's the music I was speaking of [link]
