Existing in the shadows 

Of the depths of my own mind

Yeah this time I thought I had it

Yet again I fall behind

So I ponder 

And I wonder

As I watch myself

Go under 

And the thunder

Makes me shudder

But I can't seem 

To shut it off 

All my happy thoughts 

Seem to have gone 

A million miles away

I believe I'm seeking

A better reason

To maybe smile today

But you see 

It's not that easy

Because that feeling

Is ever-fleeting 

And depleting

All my reasons

To feel I shouldn't fucking

Leave

 

I'm an emotional

Rollercoaster

Moving closer

To the ghost of

What I once thought

Was devotion

Now an ocean 

Flowing with

The moon's 

Poisonous love potion

Floating in the moment

Yeah I have to keep going

And I know that when I get to heaven 

I will be forever glowing

 

I'm a god-damn beautiul disaster 

And my mind is racing faster

As I'm chasing after laughter 

Capturing the moments that matter

Life is just perception

It's a blessing and a lesson

And I'm guessing that the next thing

That I'm learning is

It's all deception

These crazy spells

I know so well

Could be my hell

But time will tell

My wishing wells 

All seem so real

But I feel like 

They are drying up

Until I find my next high

I'll steal the stars

Out of the sky

And I'll lock them in

My own mind

Until my eyes start to

Shine again

 

I'm an emotional

Rollercoaster

Moving closer 

To the ghost of

What I once thought 

Was devotion 

Now an ocean 

Flowing with

The moon's 

Poisonous love potion 

Floating in the moment

Yeah I have to keep going

And I know that when I get to heaven

I will be forever glowing
