lyrics

My gut still wrenches at the very news you see
But who is it I kill now if the messenger is me?
Well it's masochist behavior and I think it needs to end
Only problem is I'm not functioning too well without you my friend

So I'll just try to numb my pain with a drink or 17
Try to forget about abandonment and what I used to scream
From the rooftops so high out in the middle of the night
That I was yours forever and for once, I felt alright

So I'll just dream of younger times, when there were better days
Where we'd dance this night away with empathy in our veins
Now reality is hitting, so much harder than a train
Seems like I can't shake the voices deep inside my brain

Cause I'm sick of feeling lonely, sick of always feeling down
Sick of feeling so inadequate, can't turn it all around
So sick of always talking, hell, I'll never take that step
But I'll take the leap today so I can take my very last breath

Don't know if I can take it, hell, already tried once
Feel like trying again just to shut these thoughts up
Maybe I should pull this trigger and lay here in my blood
'Cause the voices keep telling me "Boy, your pain's just begun"

So please come won't you take me away
Lie to me once again and say I'll be okay
The more time that passes I'll have to admit
The more that I think, I can't take it

So please come won't you take me away
Lie to me once again and say I'll be okay
The more time that passes I'll just have to admit
The more that I think, I can't do this
