In the jungle of the mind, sleeping tiger’s deep inside.
Addictions at rest, no longer hide.
Careful what your head is saying,
Your heart knows best, keep on praying.
Sleeping tiger, deep inside
Keeping quiet, full of pride.
Rearing it’s ugly head at me
Keeps me alert; I’m scared you see.
Reaching out in painful times
Can’t be done with tiger eyes
Watching every move I make
My head starts plotting, it’s too late.
I’ve done the hurtful thing, I know
But tiger won and stole the show.
I’m exhausted now and in much pain
Sleeping tiger’s awake again.
Help me please to quiet it down.
Reaching out, gaining ground.
A slip I say, I’m not a quitter
Batter up! Another hitter.
I’ll win the game, at least for now,
Tiger sitting looking on.
Go to sleep, and sleep forever.
I can’t go through one more endeavor.
