Stronghold

I thought I was safe inside my stronghold
Unreachable I thought I was
Isolated I thought I was
But I was wrong

Even the tallest towers could haven't prevented pain
from breaking into my sickened body
Even the strongest gates could haven't stopped sorrow
from breaching my weakened heart
Even the deepest moat could haven't kept loneliness away
from invading my suffering soul

There's no stronghold that can keep me safe
Your dilacerating words are still in my mind

There's no stronghold that can keep me unspoiled
Residues of your love still remain in my heart

There's no stronghold that can make me believe
I abandoned faith outside the walls
that you forced me to build

I thought I was safe inside my stronghold
But it has turned into my own dungeon
I know you no longer want to enter it
But I can't leave it because you're out there
