I drowned inside my mind

I won't give up the fight

My world has shattered

Almost 14 years ago

And I am still

Cut by all the pieces

When it broke

I think about things that I can

__never fully remember

Dissociation has got the best of me

And I don't even know what to do about it

Whenever I fall down

I see those laughing clowns

Hovering like a crowd

My heart is open

But, only 'cause I have lost the key

__to lock it with

Well, when I look the truth straight in thee eye

I swallow the pain

__as it comes like a fever again

And when the fear gets to my head

It's like I

__am already dead

I'll leave before

I open the door

And I find me a whore

So I can fuck some more

And if I could see the light

I would not feel so blind

But, when I have lost the battle

I guess I will be a toasted piece of bread

With crummy alibis

Oh, why should I die?

I haven't lived life

So much lacking cracks me up

When I can't tell a lie
