The shield that protects me
And prevents my being hurt
Is the same shield that hurts me
By isolating me from the world.
I’ve built it up by myself
But it seems I need you
To help me break it down
And release me from this state.
It won’t let me go on
If it’s not well-positioned
In front of me.
But with this shield blocking my view
I can’t see who’s there
So I alone keep following this path that I once knew.
