Go
Run Away
In Distress
Try To Hide
From what's Creeping And Crawling And Stabbing Within
Try To Deny
The Turmoil Inside
If You Fight Yourself Hard Enough You'll Never Win
Any Ounce Of Serenity
Or A Calm Hope At Best
Or A Calm Hope At Best
Can Leave You Heaving On The Floor
Gasping For Breath
Are You Gasping For Breath
To Be Left On The Floor Gasping For Breath

You're Either The Person You Are
Or The Person Your Trying
Trying
Trying
Trying To Be
Don't Let The Outside Sway
Too Far From Where
You Want To Be

And At Any Cruel Moments Notice
You Can Ruin The Best
As Your Body Is Brutally Pressed Agianst The Confines Of Your Tense Flesh
And If You Close Your Eyes Tight Enough
Then None Of The Bad Can Get In
None Of The Bad Can Get In
And If You Close Your Eyes Tight Enough
Then None Of The Light Can Get In
None Of The LIght Can Get In
The Light Can Get In
The Light Can Get In

Boom
You Scream As The Light Hits You
It Radiates Though Out Your Whole Soul
Boom
The Pain Is Clarity
It Cleanses
And If It Still F**king Hurts Then You Still F**king Know
That You Are Still Alive
That You Are Still In Control
If You Would Only Take Hold
Boom
The Day With Both Hands
A Death Grip
And A Good Chance To Outlive Your Past
Are You Living Free
Are You Living Free

You're Either The Person You Are
Or The Person Your Trying
Trying
Trying
Trying To Be
Don't Let The Outside Sway
Too Far From Where
You Want To Be

You're Either The Person You Are
Or The Person Your Trying
Trying
Trying
Trying To Be
Don't Let The Outside Sway
Too Far From Where
You Want To Be

    I think this song is trying to say that you shouldn't do stuff to "fit in" with this twisted world, as you will become just another twisted creature. I also see the whole "the light hits you" stuff as a symbol of you realizing that your corrupt image is not morally good. The song also talks about how it's tough to release that true, less corrupt person from within, because everybody has already come to accept the form of you that was first presented to them.

    Another one of his vampire obsession songs.

    Looks like he's turned into a vampire hence the "you scream as the light hits you"
    And that he's either the person he is or the person he's trying to be.
    It's quite confusing.
