Reaching out for something you've got to feel while clutching to what you had thought was real
Kicking at a dead horse pleases you, no way of showing your gratitude
So many things you don't want to do
What is it? What have you got to lose?
(What the hell) What the hell, what is you think you're gonna find?
(Hypocrite) Hypocrite, boredom sets into the boring mind

Struggle within, it suits you fine
Struggle within, your ruin
Struggle within, you seal your own coffin
Struggle within, the struggling within

Home is not a home, it becomes a hell turning it into your prison cell
Advantages are taken, not handed out while you struggle inside your hell
(Reaching out) Reaching out, grabbing for something you've got to feel
(Closing in) Closing in, the pressure upon you is so unreal

Struggle within, it suits you fine
Struggle within, your ruin
Struggle within, you seal your own coffin
Struggle within, the struggling within

Struggle

Go

Reaching out for something you've got to feel while clutching to what you had thought was real
What the hell, what is you think you're gonna find?
Hypocrite, boredom sets into the boring mind

Struggle within, it suits you fine
Struggle within, your ruin
Struggle within, you seal your own coffin
Struggle within, the struggling within
