"It Used To Be"
It used to be delusion
It used to be confusion
That consumed my mind
It used to be razors and knives
It used to be thoughts of my past lives
That devoured all my time
It just to be anxiety and depression
It used to be lack of another mental impression
That made happiness so hard to find
But now it's music instead of voices
And now it's love and my own choices
That make make this happy world, mine
