I remember when everything was alright
You were there to try and help me
You were there to tell me it was all okay
I felt as if I could make it
Like I could make it on my own
Now I'm on my own, and that's not how I would like it to be
My pain my suffering
No one really understands but me
You don't know what it's like to be forced to stay awake until 3
Nothing would really help
You wouldn't have helped me anyways
When you're in a hell like mine, there's no choice but to keep on walking further away
I keep on walking further away

Would they know if I was drowning
If I kept getting closer, too close to the end
Would they know if I was dying
My lungs getting weaker with every breath
Keep your prayers, I'm not suicidal
I just wonder how this could happen to me
Please just let me be

I'm starting to think of the past
How this whole experience has changed me
They might think that I've fucked up, but I can't help this acting up
I know I'm holding on
I just can't tell what I'm holding on to
I'm not just doing this for you

And I know you will only scrape the surface
Of what life must be like for me
Face the facts
It's just tough luck
I could lock myself up, and just let myself bleed
It's hard to think over just two years
I could be drowning in my fucking fear
I'm a restless freak
I can't stand myself
I just can't stand myself

I just can't stand myself

And I know you care, but you won't be around
To make sure that I am safe and fucking sound
You'll go mess with something that you care about most
'Cause what you care about most
You and your fucking boasts
Please just leave me alone
You'll never care
You never even really cared at all

Maybe I'm depressed
Maybe I'm on my own
