  • Cut me open and tell me what's inside
    Diagnose me 'cause I can't keep wondering why
    And no it's not a phase 'cause it happens all the time
    Start over, check again, now tell me what you find

    'Cause I'm going out, I'll fake what's real
    Can anyone respond?

    It's like an avalanche
    I feel myself go under
    'Cause the weight of it's like hands around my neck
    I never stood a chance
    My heart is frozen over
    And I feel like I am treading on thin ice

    Am I broken, what's the chance I will survive?
    Don't sugarcoat me, 'cause I feel like suicide
    Just give it to me straight 'cause I'm running out of time
    I need an antidote, now what can you prescribe

    It's like an avalanche
    I feel myself go under
    'Cause the weight of it's like hands around my neck
    I never stood a chance
    My heart is frozen over
    And I feel like I am treading on thin ice
    And I'm going under

    I need a cure for me 'cause a square doesn't fit the circle
    Give me a remedy 'cause my head wasn't wired for this world
    I need a cure for me 'cause a square doesn't fit the circle
    Give me a remedy 'cause my head wasn't wired for this world

    I'm going out, I'll fake what's real
    Can anyone respond?
    'Cause I'm going out, I'll fake what's real
    Can anyone respond?

    It's like an avalanche
    I feel myself go under
    'Cause the weight of it's like hands around my neck
    I never stood a chance
    My heart is frozen over
    And I feel like I am treading on thin ice
    And I'm going under

    I need a cure for me 'cause a square doesn't fit the circle
    Give me a remedy 'cause my head wasn't wired for this world
    I need a cure for me 'cause a square doesn't fit the circle
    Give me a remedy 'cause when it hits, well, it hits like an avalancheWriter/s: JORDAN KEITH ATTWOOD FISH, LEE DAVID MALIA, MATTHEW KEAN, MATTHEW STEPHEN NICHOLLS, OLIVER SCOTT SYKES
