"If a person is living out his Personal Legend, he knows everything he needs to know. There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure" - Paulo Coelho, "The Alchemist".


Verse 1:
Now-a-days I find I'm struggling
I'm trippin' over my own body
I've never felt this kind of feeling before
This mental tug of war

Verse 2:
And now I feel the ocean engulf me
It makes it so very hard to breathe
So I close my eyes and I wish it away
But my fear remains, untamed

So why I gotta be so afraid
When I know that my fear is unproductive?
Why I gotta think constantly
That I'm truly incapable?
I watch the time just slipping away
Why do I have to be chained to fear?

Verse 3:
My nerves an auction item bought and sold
My mind is a cold prison
If I had the courage to just be bold
I might be further along
