Sinking

I’ve been struggling to feel

It stings in my stomach

Like acid being pumped out

As I’m swept up by the vortex

I climb and I climb too high

I can’t imagine a way down

 

Pieces upon pieces float around me

And shards show my reflection

If only this was a dream

I’ve been swallowed by fantasies

A dreamlike world of hope

Where I can hide my misery

Behind a glass instead of

Righteous cyanide

Pictures of devils

Singing like angels

I want to come home

 

Swept in the current

Why is it so cold to be alive

Yet to the touch when you die

There’s got to be more to this life

Than idling into the horizon

 

Save your breath

Don’t call for me

I’ve already been sinking

It’s only a matter of time

Before I’m swallowed completely

Is this a dream or a memory

God forbid it’s my destiny

 

This darkness is not like what I’ve known

This loneliness is lower than low

I can’t breathe

I can’t breathe

I don’t want to be saved

But I don’t want to die

 

Pieces upon pieces float around me

And shards show my reflection

If only this was a dream

I’ve been swallowed by fantasies

A dreamlike world of hope

Where I can hide my misery

Behind a glass instead of

Righteous cyanide

Pictures of devils

Singing like angels

 

I want to come home

Nice to see you back around. 

I can hear it with music.
