The devil on my should tells me he's proud of me
That it takes a real man to look out for himself and no one else
I don't want to believe that
But sometimes it's easier to just stay silent

I wish I knew how to speak out
I never had a problem with words
But only when talking to someone else
There's a wear inside me that's all my own
And I need to talk like a king to keep myself afloat
But how much longer until everyone knows?

There's a war inside me that's all my own
There's a war inside me that's all my own

I should have started to take my own advice
From the moment that I started giving it
But I can only control what happens from here
And if none of this had happened
Then I couldn't have heard...

The angel on my shoulder tells me he's proud of me
That it takes a real man to live for everyone else before himself
I know I believe it
And it'll never get easier
But it will always be worth it

There's a war inside me that's all my own

I'm still learning to speak out against myself
And stay on the path I truly want to be on
Though I've lost my way more times that I have wished
My heart is constant and willing

I still believe that we were made for more
That what I've been doing lately
This end of depression will be the start of getting back what I have lost
Because I had become conceited
But I'm making it back to where I last left off
And so I've shown you my heart
Will you restore me?

    We came as romans’ song, “the war inside,” portrays a man who is fighting with himself. At the beginning of the song, it states that there is a demon on his shoulder and it is telling the man that it takes a real man to only look after himself. To lead the selfish life and only do what will benefit him is what the demon is saying. Yet, there is an angel on his shoulder as well. And the angel is saying that it takes a true man to stand up for what is right and to live humbly, serving others and not ones self. The conflict is quite obvious and sticks out like a sort thumb. It is easy to live a life that revolves around someone’s own self, and simply going after what he or she wants. The humble man leads a hard life; it is much harder serving others and making others happy. Buy there is a rewarding feeling when all you do is good, in order to serve another person.

    I think it's about walking a dark path and living in sin and then opening your heart back to god and trying to walk the right path.

    Its about losing what you have and all that you loved, and trying to restart, like getting a 2nd chance in life
