Name of Song: On the outside looking in

This is what she does.
Been doing it for years,
Her way of staying in control,
But one step from her tears.

Sad to live like this each day,
So hidden and recluse,
I think it started way way back
in times of much abuse.

Chorus
Unconscious emotional shutoff,
Where you don’t feel anything,
Everything’s done by proxy using
pain and lots of sin.
Unconscious emotional shutoff,
Where you don’t feel anything,
Everything’s done by proxy using
pain and lots of sin.

Bridge
On the outside looking in,
More common than you think,
It’s how you mind reacts with pain,
Emotions, then nothing.

_______

On the outside looking in,
But really can’t get out,
Of some emotional trauma that
has got you stuck in doubt.

Remember you’re a spirit,
And you also have a mind,
A part of it’s been traumatized,
Now hidden away in time.
