“Let It Roll”

Surrounded by darkness, these voices call out for me to play
They sing my name and they make me go insane
Like an echo in the distant they slowly start to fade away
They call to me to spread my wings like a crane
In my dreams I run in circles like I’m in a maze
Won’t somebody save me, they have their reign on me
In my nightmares, thoughts on repeat like it’s a new dance craze
Please somebody save me, they keep consuming me
Cornered in a box with my back against the wall
Tears fall from my eyes as I cry a waterfall
The loneliness is daunting it makes me shout
If you hear my cries, won’t you please help break me out
I carry this load around oh it’ll be my downfall
Putting up a fight trying to stand tall
But it’s weighing me down, I must drop this ball
A slip of the tongue, baby let it roll
(go on and free your mind)
Now your secret’s out, baby let it roll
(nothing can hurt you)
Crying your last tears, baby let it roll
(all those who matter won’t mind)
Curved up in a ball, baby let it roll
(shake it off and be the real you )
It’s time to swallow my pride
And show the world what I’m hiding inside
Open up the windows to welcome in the sun
Everyone knows it’s easier said than done
I’ve been searching for an escape but to no avail
The more I try to fight it the more I seem to fail
Cornered in a box with my back against the wall
Tears fall from my eyes as I cry a waterfall
The loneliness is daunting it makes me shout
If you hear my cries, won’t you please help break me out
I carry this load around oh it’ll be my downfall
Putting up a fight trying to stand tall
But it’s weighing me down, I must drop this ball
A slip of the tongue, baby let it roll
(go on and free your mind)
Now your secret’s out, baby let it roll
(nothing can hurt you)
Crying your last tears, baby let it roll
(all those who matter won’t mind)
Curved up in a ball, baby let it roll
(shake it off and be the real you )
Just let it roll, roll, roll, Yeah
Working over time is simply wasting my time
Taking risks is the key to reaching my prime
Buried deep in snow, who will dig me up
Stop hiding in the cracks in the end it’ll be fine
Show my colors bright in the sky, it’s time to shine
It’s possible in the end I may hit rock bottom
It’s just as possible, in the end I’ll reach the potential I could not fathom
Cornered in a box with my back against the wall
Tears fall from my eyes as I cry a waterfall
The loneliness is daunting it makes me shout
If you hear my cries, won’t you please help break me out
I carry this load around oh it’ll be my downfall
Putting up a fight trying to stand tall
But it’s weighing me down, I must drop this ball
But it’s weighing me down, I must drop this ball
A slip of the tongue, baby let it roll
(go on and free your mind)
Now your secret’s out, baby let it roll
(nothing can hurt you)
Crying your last tears, baby let it roll
(all those who matter won’t mind)
Curved up in a ball, baby let it roll
(shake it off and be the real you )
Baby don’t look back, come on let it roll
Just let it roll, roll, roll
Oh yeah, yeah, roll, roll, roll
Baby let it roll
