Don’t get up

Sit down

Just relax

And be calm

When finally the pain is gone

I can convince myself there’s nothing wrong.

That this conspiracy consists of no one else

Beside myself.

Why try suicide when I sabotage my mind all the time?

I cry, blur my eyes, say it will be fine but I lie.

Why am I…

Turning away from what I should be

When all that I need has already come true?

I’ve run away.

Trying to feed the courage to bleed,

Excuses they seem the only escape to

Run away.

Wash out the stink that clings to me

‘Cause people smell though they barely breathe.

I’m standing poised against their angry sea

But I drown in my own mediocrity.

How can I decide to stand against the tide

When all have died that tried?

Curled up in me room

Waiting for the signs of impending doom,

Ka-boom.

Now that I see just what I’m to be

To fulfill these dreams they’ve always deemed see through,

I’ve run away.

Trying to feed the courage to bleed

Excuses succeed to truths that entreat to

Run away.

You say you want to change something do you?

Don’t want your world this way?

Then whatcha gonna do, do, do?

Wash out the stink that clings to me

‘Cause people smell though they barely breathe.

I’m standing poised against their angry sea

But I drown in my own mediocrity.

How can I decide to stand against the tide

When all have died that tried?

Curled up in me room

Waiting for the signs of impending doom,

Ka-boom.
