Howard Lawrence – The Enemy Inside lyrics

Someone let you down
Dealt you a hand you couldn't play out
Made you afraid of life
Gave you a reason for raising your knife
But something brought you here
You don't know what it is or whether it's real
Like hourglass sand you're falling through space
Searching for clues so you know what to chase

Don't look around for a four leaf clover
Don't get attached to your fortune cookie
Nothing can save you from drowning your faith
Or hatching a plot for the ultimate escape
But everything you need is there staring back at you
Once you let go of the enemy inside
Everyone's waiting…... We're all here to catch you
So give yourself a gift——let go of the enemy inside

Swimming against the tide
You put your thumb out and got taken for a ride
Lost all your dignity
The audience laughed at your pleas for humanity
Sometimes it helps to eat dirt
With a newborn's perspective you'll rarely get hurt
Just keep one eye open in case of attack
Coz even your friends can put a gun to your back

Don't be surprised when the storm flies over
Don't burn the leaves on your neighbor's timetable
Nothing can keep you from losing your touch
Dark chocolate everyday?
Hmmm…... That's a bit too much!
When all you need is me in there staring back at you
You can let go of the enemy inside
Don't keep us waiting for you to decide
Listen to your heart——let go of the enemy inside

Haven't you made a big fool of yourself?
Even a blind man can see you need help

Remind me to book the next date
So you can rediscover what's been left on your plate
Show you the rhythm machine
If you get up and dance there's a chance you'll be seen
Leave your computer alone
It's a crutch and you know it——your chair ain't a throne
How long has it been?
Such a long time to waste
Put the glass to your lips—... All you need is one taste
