a million miles from where you you would most like to be i can feel this whole building collapsing on me nobody sees me nobody hears nobody wants me but they still keep me here let the layers of paperwork blanket me whole no one's telling me anything i need to know get me out of this place a million miles from where you should actually be i'm just watching the clock while they're burying me

when the world is waking up i close my eyes when the world is waking up i put the chain on the door are they working on you like they're working on me?

honestly I don't know what I should say i can't find a place to start honestly i just need some time away this is tearing me apart what am i supposed to do with all of this? let's pretend that it won't always be this way even though we know the truth let's pretend that i'm not miles away even though i'm here with you what am i supposed to do with all of this?

i've heard enough i've had enough my head is pounding on the way i lost my way i lost my footing all i see is foreign to me, so why do i feel like I'm home? i fixed my gaze for several days but i wasn't looking you pay in time they make you wait time's on their side

what is it you think you're giving me when you look at me that way? what is it you think you're giving me that i can't go get somewhere else for free? well it's not for me to say and you won't listen to me anyway

i used to think that i was was strong but now i know that i was wrong there is no compass for where i am no solid ground where i can stand so i'm giving up because there's no point i used to think that i was good but clearly i misunderstood there is no compass for where i am no way to find out where i should stand so i'm in the dark where i belong no need to locate a place to stand and i've given up because know i know

it hurts too much to look back no worse than where i am now but i don't care to see that and the future's crashing down now everything is red and every moment aches throbbing in my head the sum of my mistakes where one man used to stand you look and there are none you swear you know what you saw but what you saw is gone you see what you believe you believe in what you see but whatever might've been there's nothing left of me (what you knew is gone)
10.
you can't see them but they're there they hang above you in the air and you can't stop them coming through or coming starkly into view and you can't stop them coming down their weight just pins you to the ground every shred of wrong you do every word that you let through every thing you should have done pressing on you like a ton don't even bother getting up this storm will not be letting up don't be so hard on yourself
