Burnt my fingers more than once
My eyes are scarred by the light of the sun
I’m not even thinking my own thoughts anymore
It’s like looking into a mirror
But I’m standing on the wrong side of the glass
Heavier and heavier
Yet my bones are starting to show
I fell asleep in the dirt
Guess my body is paying my mind’s toll
I’m sorry I would love to talk but now I’ll sleep
I’ve got all these feelings eating away at me
Let me write you a letter
Let me love you better
‘cause you know that I can’t speak
I’ve got something to say
But it doesn’t sound like me
How far should I go so I can stop feeling alone?
We might be in the same room but not the same space
Everything looks so different yet you still look the same
I cut out a piece of skin to see what’s really within
But what does it mean to have a heart?
Is it to never speak?
Cause all these things I feel I only say them in my sleep
