about

a song about self-sabotage

lyrics

the sky tonight is starless, the ocean is dark
the lights of the city are dim in my heart
there's broken glass everywhere in the moonlight
the pieces are shattered and sharp

the sunset was so many hours ago
i can't see a thing in the moonlight's soft glow
it's three in the morning, and i'm still awake
what's happening to me, i don't know

what would you do, what would you do
if you could do nothing but fight

i'm clawing my way out of this hole i have dug
i'm destroying the things that i used to love
i'm telling my friends to all leave me alone
i'm sleeping on streets right in front of my home
i'm running so fast from the monster i freed
i'm leaving the things behind me that i need
i'm killing myself when i just want to live
"why do you want to die?" "cause i already did"

their eyes are boring through me, they keep pushing me away
they force me to go, though i just want to stay
i know it's not good for me, it's breaking me down
my view of them is blackened and grey

my head hurts, my head hurts, like a migraine but worse
the voices in my head, they are losing all their words
it's hard to understand them, it's hard to see straight
but when they leave me, i swear and i curse
what would you do, what would you do
if you could do nothing but fight

i'm clawing my way out of this hole i have dug
i'm destroying the things that i used to love
i'm telling my friends to all leave me alone
i'm sleeping on streets right in front of my home
i'm running so fast from the monster i freed
i'm leaving the things behind me that i need
i'm killing myself when i just want to live
"why do you want to die?" "cause i already did"

what would you do, what would you do
if you could do nothing but fight
what would you do, what would you do
if you couldn't see any light

i'm clawing my way out of this hole i have dug
i'm destroying the things that i used to love
i'm telling my friends to all leave me alone
i'm sleeping on streets right in front of my home
i'm running so fast from the monster i freed
i'm leaving the things behind me that i need
i'm killing myself when i just want to live
"why do you want to die?" "cause i already did"

i'm trying to stop it, i want to be free
they're trying to keep me, i just want to leave
i'm running away, cause it's all i can do
i'd keep myself safe, if only they knew

what would you do, what would you do
if you could do nothing but fight
