Remind you of that day,
Remember,
When you walked away,
Remember that,
What was I supposed to say?

Don’t say I didn’t try,
Were those tears as fake as mine,
They weren’t my tears running from your eyes,
I was so close but yet so far,
Light extinguished like a dying star,

So I slipped into a darkened place
Away from the daily rush,
That frantic pace,
I passed away for the day,
I had a change in mind,
Halfway here,
Halfway there,
To mundane for the average mind,

Half a brain,
Half the mind,
Half a story is a waste of time,
Here today,
Your gone the tomorrow,
Not a hard act to follow,
Are you here?
One of us?
Halfway between,
But still unseen,
Halfway there,
But nowhere near,
Halfway to giving it up,
Someone let me out of here


And it’s right now,
That I can see,
What I’ve done,
And what’s been seen,
I opened up my mouth and prepared to scream,
With my eyes stuck shut,
Won’t let the tears stream.

I opened up my mind to a lost girl soul,
Now it’s her as well with tears that roll,
Down her face and to the floor,
Now it’s two of us,
That can’t take it anymore.

Half a brain,
Half the mind,
Half a story is a waste of time,
Here today,
Your gone the tomorrow,
Not a hard act to follow,
Are you here?
One of us?
Halfway between,
But still unseen,
Halfway there,
But nowhere near,
Halfway to giving it up,
Someone let me out of here


Well thought I tried,
Still denied,
Put my brain in a frying pan,
Until it’s burnt out on both sides,
Let me burn,
Soon I’ll learn,
How to stay awake in my body,
Not just my mind,
I’ve got demons I’ve just got to find,
Lurking somewhere in between,
Ripping at me and my dreams,
Tearing me across the seams,
Someone let me out of here.

Half a brain,
Half the mind,
Half a story is a waste of time,
Here today,
Your gone the tomorrow,
Not a hard act to follow,
Are you here?
One of us?
Halfway between,
But still unseen,
Halfway there,
But nowhere near,
Halfway to giving it up,
Someone let me out of here.

And what it all comes down to in the end,
The final stand,
Who’s your friend?
Is the demon living inside?
Or the person on the other side?
I made my way to halfway there,
I was lost,
I didn’t care,
Further from where I came from,
Means I’m closer to you,
Maybe someday I’ll be as confused as you,
Your not here,
I’m not with me,
Then I’ve got and blown it away,
I’ll come back for it another day
Half a brain,
Half the mind,
Half a story is a waste of time,
Here today,
Your gone the tomorrow,
Not a hard act to follow,
Are you here?
One of us?
Halfway between,
But still unseen,
Halfway there,
But nowhere near,
Halfway to giving it up,
Someone let me out of here.

I don’t kill myself because it isn’t in fashion,
I live my life on instinct and passion,
Suicides not so cool now,
Homicide is the way to go,
I’m not going down so fast,
I’ll come back like a bullet through glass,
Deadly and silent,
Hits you where it kills,
So quick and so painless,
Life is so hard to make good,
And so easy to end,
Look in your mind,
And take on everything God sends,
We can do it,
Take as far as you can,
Living life with your money and your fast car,
Do you dare?
He who dares wins,
Apart from the rest of your life your head spins,
Faster and faster until it makes you sick,
In the end,
Who’s your best friend?

Half a brain,
Half the mind,
Half a story is a waste of time,
Here today,
Your gone the tomorrow,
Not a hard act to follow,
Are you here?
One of us?
Halfway between,
But still unseen,
Halfway there,
But nowhere near,
Halfway to giving it up,
Someone let me out of here,
Let me out of here,
Someone let me out of here,
Because you’ve got to get away from here,
Got to get away from here,
Got to get away from here.
