I'm a mess
Drowning in a sea of sadness
Filling every airway
I can't stay
Down here any longer
I don't feel any stronger
It's making me sick

Though I did it to myself
Doesn't make it any less of hell
Trapped on the outside
Teary-eyed and tucked tail
Why oh why did I fail you

Lie awake in bed
Pick apart my head
Try and try to figure out just why
I could let all of this die

I'm a wreck
I'd make any trek just to see you
Even for a moment
I don't care where we're going
Doesn't matter how brief or confusing
It's better than losing
You all together
Than losing you forever

Lie awake again
Try and make amends
With myself and everyone
Though I know I should be shunned
For the things that I have done

I want to feel it all
I'm tearing down the walls
Feel it all
Feel it all
Feel it all fall on me
I can't see
And I can't sleep
I can't breath
But I'm starting to believe
That if I let it in
It won't be like it's been
Maybe I could mend
Please don't let this be the end
The end
The end
