the heart in my chest sounds an unheard cry

my world view distorted through the tears in my eye

-

Breathe out . . . breathe in . . .

-

my hands won't stop shaking, betraying my pain

as memories assault me again and again

-

breathe out . . . breathe in . . .

-

I can't help but wonder what evil I've done

to deserve all these feelings that blot out the sun

-

breathe out . . . breathe in . . .

-

people around me, I'm not on my own

but never before have I felt so alone

-

breathe out . . . breathe in . . .

-

I wear a mask for the world, “Everything's fine!”

if only they knew I walk a very thin line

-

breathe out . . . breathe in . . .

-

anger and anguish, depression and rage

whirl round inside me, forming my cage

-

breathe out . . . breathe in . . .

-

I can't stop the voices that scream in my head

maybe they'd stop if I were just . . .

-

breathe out . . .
