Eyes half wide open staring at the edge of the earth
I'm already gone from this corpse
That lays beside my soul
Just walk away before I drag you down with me

Cure me of this disease that I won't let you see
I'm demanding attention, cause I'm feeling weak

I can barely see past the black in my eyes
I've felt the bottom (I've felt the bottom)
I can barely see past the black in my eyes
But I've heard it heals in time

If I could shed this skin
Leave my body open
Just to prove that there was nothing left to lose
Closed eyes stay shut until I look away
Take the easy way out
Find a hiding place

My past mistakes are scars in the shape
Of a smile on my face
I keep my defeats as a weakness to me
As the secrets collect on my cheeks
I'm all alone in a crowded room
You give me something to hold on to
This is how it starts, how people go crazy

If I could shed this skin
Leave my body open
Just to prove that there was nothing left to lose
Closed eyes stay shut until I look away
Take the easy way out
Find a hiding place

Filled to my lips with excuses
Me and confusion are attached at the hip

If these thoughts had a gut, they could swallow me whole
You know that we are all terminal
The first day we are born is the first day we start dying all alone
There's a silence at night that no one should know
There's a hole in my house that they call my room
Where I keep myself locked away, waiting for another day
To make it on my own
I'm a broken mirror put back together
Vulnerable, there's still cracks
Some pieces don't fit
