A need for attention
A cry for help
Take another worthless pill
try to make everything seem okay


You're intending to fall
So find the thin ice
Walk to the center, shed a tear
The world has betrayed you have no place left to go
And now you want to take the plunge

Hear the cracks
Stand alone
Break into the cold water
Where no one can reach a hand longing for touch
There's nobody left to turn to and inside
It burns

Like hell

So take a breath
Watch it rise
Lower your head
Shudder upon every heartbeat

If you could just realize that this ice is only temporary...
