"Hidden Fences"



"Hidden Fences"©





All the people walking around, thoughts, running through their head
Not telling anyone for fear of things, that just might be said
There are things that they won't talk about of secrets, they just can't say
They keep them bottled up inside to them, it's just another day

In a prison of torment and pain, the past won't let them go
Their mind cannot function as it should, their self-esteem is low
All the sadness and anxiousness like a poison, running through their veins
Depression and worthlessness, the doubts, are driving them insane

Chorus
Hidden fences built so high so that no one can see into their life
Hidden fences all around them it's the only way that they can deal with strife
Hidden fences their protection, so that all, the world cannot see
Hidden fences cage them in, locked away, inside their sanctuary

The fence is so high, like a fortress, you cannot enter in
It's the place where they bide, living life, they know they cannot win
They just won't let you in, there's no gate, to keep you all outside
They live a lonely bitter life; it's where they go when they want to hide.

 Chorus
Hidden fences built so high so that no one can see into their life
Hidden fences all around them it's the only way that they can deal with strife
Hidden fences their protection so that all the world cannot see
Hidden fences cage them in, locked away, inside their sanctuary
