Someone's Standing On My Chest

  • Starving searching this barren wasteland
    Trying to grasp being this alone
    Pleading for a breath of fresh air, someone's standing on my chest
    Dying I'm asphyxiating myself
    Break myself slave to my weakness choke on my words
    Oh I'm drowning and I feel so alone
    The lights are on and I wish I was home
    My lips are screaming pretty nothings
    My ears are bleeding for want of words, fuck words I need actions
    Hope as left me fucking shattered
    Someone's standing on my chest
    Alone would be a pleasant change from here
    How do you gauge loneliness how you ever felt so alone
    It feels like the light will never reach me here
    I am choking back my longing for shed tears
    So strangulated by my lonesome fears plead
    Don't worry too much, it only hurts when I breathe Writer/s: Brandon Saller, Christopher Gordon Thomson, Daniel Louis Jacobs, Ektor Alexander Varkatzas, Travis William Miguel
