My head flips the room when I’m in my bed
I wake up sick and confused again
And what kills me is that my best nights of sleep
I’m too gone to lie awake and think

I’m half asleep, I’m quietly sinking into my room again
Like a blood stain, a pool beneath my head, I’m set in

I’m not coming out

It’s nothing new – it’s constant fear this side of you
Could be made better with a drink or two
You panic like you always do
And I wear a mask, but after this long, you don’t call it that
When all you do is put on an act, it’s just a fact

Empty me out
Put me on display on a shelf in your house
Shatter me on the ground
Let my insides pour out
Does it make you proud?
