  • I am ready to shed this skin
    To dive within
    To see what lies inside
    To find a dream that flies
    To light a fire that burns so bright
    That brings warmth to the dark nights
    Of the soul - the ones so cold
    That chill me to the bone
    And make me feel so far from home
    I am ready

    I am ready to breathe again
    To leave this illness far behind
    This sick that left me feeling blind
    The pit down deep tied in a knot
    That played games with my troubled mind
    Forgetting all the good in life I've got
    And creeping regrets and guilty blames
    Revealing fears in fevers flames
    Take a breath and walk away from this
    I am ready
