Sinking through dark black holes 
It's never gonna end 
Open gash in my rib cage 
It's never gonna mend 
Take another picture of the wall 
Sinking deeper every time I fall 

Each day ends quicker 
And my mind gets slower too 
As my life just fades away 
I wouldn't have a clue 

Take another draw out from the shelf 
I'm too weak to do it by myself 

Though you had the world at your feet 
You could see it I was blind 
Had the perfect job called life 
You didn't like it you resigned 

Brain's a square of grass 
Growing on petrol and chlorine 

On petrol and chlorine 
You know just what I mean
