I know this might sound crazy
But I swear someone's chasing me
I can feel their presence over my shoulder
But a shadow is all I ever see
I can constantly hear his voice
Softly whispering in my ears
Amplifying my insecurities
Giving life to all my fears
No matter what road I choose
It seems he's always on my trail
I think his only purpose is to
Make my life a living hell
He constantly reminds me that I'm nothing
And that my life is just a waste of time
Let's me know that he's in charge
And I better not step out of line
He seems to know everything about me
All the things I am inside
He knows all my deep dark secrets
All the skeletons I try to hide
He reminds me of all my mistakes
In hopes that I'll repeat them
He taunts me with such confidence
Knowing that I can't beat him
His presence is like a dark cloud
That fills me up with dread
And no matter how far or fast I run
He's always one step ahead
He said "I'm always one step ahead
Because you move so sloppy
And I can move just like you do
Call me your carbon copy"
He said "but I think you must be confused
Cause you got me all wrong
I'm not some shadowy figure chasing you
I've been here all along
Maybe if I let you see me
Things will become clearer
So here's exactly what you do
When you go home look in the mirror"
I get home and enter the bathroom
Afraid of what I might see
And before I could turn on the light
I saw a pair of eyes looking at me
I took a nice long look and stared into the eyes
Of the man playing with my mental health
And realized I wasn't being chased
I was just running from myself
