Lately, I think I was over Time am I just beaten so ? Like the clouds, see color of them 
fading out fading out Ooh, the heavy heart I carried went over your head And over mine

I counted the days she left like a prisoner
Etching markings on my skin with an old knife, scratching (Forget)
You see I wanted the physical to match the psychological
And yet no matter how hard I dug, I still could not match that pain (Regret)
I longed for reasons, I sung with demons I sat in a dark, dusty room barely moving, breathing (Forget)
I chewed threw my own umbilical cord, attached to her naval
I wanted to be separate

Ooh, oh I think my mind is leaking Ooh, solitude is so depleting

I did it to myself I know that you were faithful
I did it for my health How come I'm still unstable? 
I've fallen far from help A suicidal angel
Exhaust my wings and fell
Falling so ungraceful
Banished into hell

I wish that I could stop crying
They say that the body is 70% water
I feel like I must've reduced mine by a considerable fraction
Newton's Third Theory states that: "For every action, there must be an equal and opposite counter-reaction
And so I re-traced my steps, and try to find reasons, in the arms of my demons 
'Cause I can't find healing, if I can't find meaning
A conundrum leaning on my dumb numb feelings
Tie the noose high-beaming, when I hung from ceilings
When I run from demons, that are living in my head and escape
Fate and disapparate, evaporate, evacuate, and then activate
Fate, but it cut the breaks Now, I'm driving my universe into a lake and the weight,

Weight of the world, don't wait
We make mistakes when it's all at stake
For goodness sakes, a double take
But, I don't want to eat that cake
I ruminate inside meaning
To illuminate a dark mind I communicate without speaking 
And I've seen so much, I went blind eyed

Why? I live in a lie, Living a lie, with the lion inside (I did it to myself) Living a lie, with the lion inside (I know, I know)
And my mind it is hungry, it's hungry, for my Sanity, my sanity, I-
Living a lie, with the lion inside (I did it to myself) 
Living a lie, with the lion inside (I know, I know) 
And my mind it is hungry, and I don't why

Pressure drop, Deep breathe Time stops
A broken, et cetera, dot, dot, dot
Pressure drop Pressure drop Pressure drop 
I feel it, consuming, I can't stop

Dot-to-dot, the lines join the dots
And I'm tying knots (I did it to myself) And divide and multiply Square the root of Pi 
Beat the puzzle (I know, I know) I tried to keep my mind focused on the line

Hopscotch and Pop Rocks
I take shots of tear drops (I did it to myself)
When I drop, a pill pop (I know, I know)
I find peace, and time stops (I know, I know, I know, I kn-)
