Wake up red eyes
Your friends say you're a vampire
No one laughs
Cause jokes aren't funny when they're true
You dad is pacing
Your mom's been crying
Your phone's been ringing
It's your grandma from out of state
She heard that something's wrong
She wants to make sure you're okay

You've been so distant
You gave up bathing
If you still talked
You'd say you can't stand feeling clean
Cause it reminds you
Of why you used to
Care in the first place
If you looked a certain way
But it doesn't matter now
Soon your clothes won't fit
At the rate you're losing weight

There's a stranger in your bed
He's kicked you out of your own head
And he thinks about the reason
That you're stuck as someone else
Every painful hour that you're awake
So sleep turns into your escape

All the people
With their solutions
Want to help you
You know they're on your side
But what they don't get is
It's not that easy
You fell so hard that
You've broken all your bones
So you can't pick yourself up
It's out of your control
You wish they'd leave
But listen red eyes, you can't do this alone

There's a stranger in your bed
He's kicked you out of your own head
And he thinks about the reason
That you're stuck as someone else
Every painful hour that you're awake
So sleep turns into your escape

Wake up red eyes
Wake up red eyes
Wake up red eyes
Wake up...
