Lyrics

Move My Body, Heal My Mind

Miller House, June 2017

Scar-filled anger turns to stars
as I turn my arms to god and cry

Hiding behind
this angry mask
Dying for help
but scared to ask
It's hard to accept,
gonna take a long time
When I move my body
I can heal my mind

I look in the mirror and I see a stranger
I feel my hurt, my mind cries danger
I don’t know, I don’t know
I don’t know what I need
I walk outside and then I try to breath

Hiding behind
this angry mask
Dying for help
but scared to ask
It's hard to accept,
gonna take a long time
When I move my body
I can heal my mind

How do I accept what I cannot change
time and patience can heal my heal pain
I can’t stay silent, can’t punch the wall
if I don’t say it
I’m bound to fall

Hiding behind
this angry mask
Dying for help
but scared to ask
It's hard to accept,
gonna take a long time
When I move my body
I can heal my mind
