THE BATTLE MAY BE OVER

Audio teaser by  Mick Terry  on   PTSD song lyrics: The Battle May Be Over song. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder lyrics. SoundCloud.com/MickTerry-com/ SoundCloud.com/MickTerry-com   -

It's a fight to survive with each ugly new day,
'though my body's nowhere near that hell-hole.
It's a video mind where the scenes are replayed
over and over and over again.
Something's got to be done and it's me that's got to stick to- it.

'Nough of scaring the crap out of my wife and kids.
'Nough of bottles and pills on the night- stand.
'Nough of filling out apps for these jobs that don't fit,
dragging me nowhere but nowhere but down.
Something's got to be done and it's me that's got to stick to- it.

    THE BATTLE MAY BE OVER, but the war has just begun.
    THE BATTLE MAY BE OVER, but the war is not yet won.

From a friend over there fighting similar stuff,
heard about some new program seems to be work-ing.
I'm a little bit scared. I'm not feeling so tough.
Too many failures. Not wanting one more.
Something's got to be done and it's me that's got to stick to- it.

    CHORUS

        What do I have to lose? Nothing else worked for long.
        What do I have to gain? What do I have to lose?

Close-knit fam'ly and friends have supported me through
each new program I've tried to this moment.
More and more this looks like it's the thing I must do,
moving me forward without falling again.
Something's got to be done and it's me that's got to stick to- it.

    CHORUS
