lyrics

I pretend that the words aren’t trapped within my thoughts
But to be truthful, they’re slowly ripping me apart
Been told I’m depressed, called fucking hopeless, and all the rest
I say I’m not a pessimist, but a realist
But that’s a lie I tell myself, when I drown in negligence
To briefly become a person that I don’t resent
Letting every dawn just burn away
I’m seeing weeks as numbers
Instead of opportunities to change
This didn’t happen overnight
Yet you expect me to change in a day
Like it’s so easy to part from your ways
This isn’t a conscious decision
It’s something that’s hard to fight
Until you walk in my shoes you won’t understand
Don’t say a word until through my eyes you see
The pain, the stress, the difficulty
The strain my own thoughts put on me
I’ve accepted that I am the only one to blame
I’m done with excuses, I’m done with the bullshit
I’m done with my own flawed reasoning
Constantly searching
For reasons to be miserable
Living in fear and trepidation
Waiting for my world to crumble
Tearing apart what I wish to achieve
Living like this, makes goals forever just stay dreams
I don’t want your sympathy
I just want some damn consistency
