lyrics

I lie behind my woven sheets
my eyes were focused, close to black.
my mind's a wreck inside of me
with hopeful thoughts of coming back.

I'm not a man that holds his pride.
I'm just a kid who's come to terms.
My eyes weren't closed, they were opened wide.
with hopes and dreams that I could learn.

I could try to preach, but couldn't speak if anyone could ever see this fabric cling so desperately.

The only thing that's holding me
is the thought that maybe I could breathe comfortably here
comfortably here.

Life or death, it doesn't change.
Perspective lies in how we think.

Why me? What happened in this circumstance and why'd it have to be me.
Don't mind me. I'm just breaking down this sadness as I'm twisting my perspective.

Why me? What happened in this circumstance and why'd it have to be me.
Don't mind me. I'm just breaking down this sadness.
I'm twisting my perspective on life.

I'm breaking down this sadness.
I'm twisting my perspective on life.
