is anyone listening?

Dead girl breathing to the living over

Can't you see?

I stand here before

Flesh falling before your eyes

Rot infecting my chest

Black congealing blood oozing down my arms

Greying skin

Patches of bone exposed

Festering stench clinging

Can't you see?

I'm a dead girl breathing

You act like I'm alive

You act like I'm okay

Can't you see?

But you don't want to see it

The ugliness

The darkness

The truth

I'm a dead girl breathing

You see a girl smiling

You see a girl happy

Why can't you see through it?

The fa├žade

The mask

The lies

Part of me is silently crying out for you to know the truth

Part of me silently crying out for you to see it

I'm a dead girl breathing

Is anyone listening?

Dead girl breathing doesn't want anyone to hear

Dead girl breathing doesn't want anyone to see it

Dead girl breathing doesn't want anyone know

Dead girl breathing to the living over and out
