lyrics

Anxiety creeping and crawling up your spine.
Your core is boiling, about to burst
and you're out of time.
Your blood is burning, your heart is racing, and guts keep churning.

Biting your nails
ripping the skin.
nobody knows the pain you're in.

You just can't decide to choose, which weight you want to lose.
What role are we meant to play on this godforsaken ricochet?
Darkness is welded into your mind, you're trapped in the past with no escape.

White hospital walls, armed officials hover like a thick fog.
Treating the lonely kid like a dead rabid dog.

I don't want your medications,
I don't need your advice.
You mimic the ticks and the lice.
Hopelessness is here, the past is your curse, and the future you fear.

Biting your nails,
ripping the skin,
nobody knows the pain you're in.

Never will I be capable to decide,
do I live, or do I die?
