(This song was recently used in a talk about addiction.)

I can't escape this hell
So many times i've tried
But i'm still caged inside
Somebody get me through this nightmare
I can't control myself

So what if you can see the darkest side of me?
No one will ever change this animal I have become
Help me believe it's not the real me
Somebody help me tame this animal
(This animal, this animal)

I can't escape myself
(I can't escape myself)
So many times i've lied
(So many times i've lied)
But there's still rage inside
Somebody get me through this nightmare
I can't control myself

So what if you can see the darkest side of me?
No one will ever change this animal I have become
Help me believe it's not the real me
Somebody help me tame this animal I have become
Help me believe it's not the real me
Somebody help me tame this animal

Somebody help me through this nightmare
I can't control myself
Somebody wake me from this nightmare
I can't escape this hell

So what if you can see the darkest side of me?
No one will ever change this animal I have become
Help me believe it's not the real me
Somebody help me tame this animal I have become
Help me believe it's not the real me
Somebody help me tame this animal

FT,

Man, was that ever hard to read. This describes pretty much how I felt in San Francisco 38 years ago. "Help me, believe it's not the real me." Geez. It was due to people who heard that cry and responded that I made it through that time. It's amazing how powerful a message in music can be. Thanks for sharing this one.

Much love,
Larry

WOW! There's some me THEN and some me TODAY in this. Except, up till I was 14, I was not seeking any change or any help from anyone.

Then, at 14, there was only one being who could help me! And this is his day!

Unbelievable!!!
This song could have been written about me(and I guess alot of other people too).
Last Night I Detoxed myself from Alcohol( i know it is very dangerous to do unsupervised, but I have medical training, and I have detoxed before in a treatment center for a week. I am not going to lie-it was extreamly painful. But I toughed it out and its starting to subside-AKA-I'm on the down hill side of it. I'm still pretty shaky, but nothing compared tolast nite, 3am. The DT's got so bad that I had to(definatly did NOT want) take a cold shower to bring my internal temp. down.
I could go into how the DT's/withdrawals can kill some one-but that would take WAt too much time, besides you guys can just look it up. One thing that I feel obligated to say is that withdawral are VERY dangerous and can very well kill you, besids being a very unplesant way to go. If one you plan on quiting drinking, either go to a Detox facility, or an ER/ED-hospital, even before you feel any effects! DT's are nothing to joke about. They are very Dangerous/Painful/ and potentially Fatal.

sorry to deviate off topic so far. This song is great!! When I watched the video of it, all I saw was myself, I espicially liked the end--and the metaphor they use for drugs; appering beatiful and enticing on the outside, with the true beast it really it once one sees past the glamour.

So, thanx alot for posting this, tex
It could not have come at a better time.
