Overbearing panic attack entrenching my veins
In an hour I'll be OK I pray that this pain will go away permanently someday
I've seen more than I should have to I've seen this on my own

This song is a poem to myself it helps me to live
In case of fire break the glass and move on into your own, your own

Reoccurring drowning effect entrenching my brain
I hope you'll be OK someday so I can say that you moved on in the right way
We've seen this and we've breathed this and we've lived this on our own

This song is a poem to myself it helps me to live
In case of fire break the glass and move on into your own

This song is a poem to myself it helps me to live
In case of fire break the glass and move on into your own, your own

This song is a poem to myself it helps me to live
In case of fire break the glass and move on into your own

This song is a poem to myself it helps me to live
In case of fire break the glass and move on into your own, your own, your own, your own!
