All the sandcastles that I built
were crashed down with a quilt

The water started crashing around
but there's no life guard to be found

As the waves pulled me in deeper
I knew I found my secret keeper

But when I wake I'll finally be free
forgetting who I use to be

There's another name that they'll call
and no one knows about my last fall

It's a secret kept within the ocean
an' I'll follow through the new motion

Creating a new life for me to start
empty, no heart to rip apart

Completely soul less just like all the rest
I'll be surrounded with the best of the best

I already sold my soul before
I never should've asked for more

Now I want chance to remember what I had
before they turned me into something bad

But this is where my new journey will begin
knowing inside that the devil is my kin

This isn't a fairy tale to be told
no one knows how much long I will hold

But I'll keep to my honest word
I'll stay quiet completely unheard

The day they take me out of the game
that's when I'll finally have true fame

But until then I sing with secret riddles
listening to the devil play his fiddles

Remember I said it all came crashing around
Jesus was the lifeguard never found

Take this in with an open mind
because only then you will find

The truth that's hidden in the lies
set me free before my spirit dies.....
