"There exists no heaven and no hell, nothing to look forward to after we have gone to ashes; live every moment NOW, and make things happen the way you want to in this lifetime; not the next."

Four white-washed walls, an uninspired ceiling
Curtained windows concealing the chaos beyond
The monotony of every day chores, duties
And the utter boredom of a structured life

Lost amidst a million rules and regulations
Emotions to deal with, sentiments to reconcile
And the feeling of knowing that my voice shall
Forever be stampeded upon by the opinions of others

The same faces, they become a blur now
Dialogues have been imprinted on the mind
Everything moves by meaninglessly
It's essence lost; no life, no soul, no spark.

Trained to repeatedly carry out the very same tasks
Ordered to speak in this one way, to act in that one
Pleasing them is the motto I'm to follow ;
Forgetting myself has become an absolute.

Only punishment follows dreams of enjoyment
Your harsh words and harsher actions, they pierce
Through me worse than broken shards of glass -
Forgiveness has become a virtue only I need to possess.

But tonight, I'm breaking free of those bonds that imprison me
I'm escaping from those rules that weigh me down
Because tonight, I'm going to live my life my way
And I'm not going to wonder what people might think

Tonight, I'm going to laugh till tears swim down my cheeks
And I'll dance till my feet are sore and my head spins
I'll listen to music and I will sing along off-key,
And I'll make noise loud enough for the world to hear.

Tonight, it's the night I shall break free.
It's the night I choose to rediscover myself
Tonight I will make memories to last me a lifetime -
Tonight, it's the night that everything changes-
It's tonight that I shall fly away into the darkness.
