  • You can see the pain in my laugh (yeah, yeah)
    Demons comin' back from the past (yeah, yeah)
    Feelin' like I'm 'bout to relapse (yeah, yeah)
    Voices in my head (yeah, yeah)
    All I can hear them say (yeah, yeah)
    Is, "Everyone wants me dead" (yeah, yeah)
    Bitch, I'm already dead (yeah, yeah)
    I've been dead for years

    I've been takin' medicine again (yeah, yeah)
    Henny, mix it with the Vicodin (yeah, yeah)
    All my sufferin' (yeah)
    Is really gettin' under my skin (yeah)
    Maybe I should try to pray again (yeah, yeah)
    Try to wash away my sins (yeah, yeah)
    I know that they not my friends (yeah, yeah)
    But I'm friends with the drugs again (yeah)

    Lost my heart, lost it all
    So much drama, hold the applause
    Shit's like a soap opera, straight downfalls
    Nightmares on the cellphone, late-night calls
    Lost my heart, lost it all
    So much drama, hold the applause
    No soap opera, straight downfalls
    Listen to the nightmares call

    I've been dead for years (yeah)

    Have you ever been so alone? (Yeah, yeah)
    That nobody's house feels like home (yeah, yeah)
    I've been runnin' out of drugs and hope (yeah, yeah)
    I don't even got a plug no more (yeah, yeah)
    Have you ever been so alone? (Yeah, yeah)
    That you don't know what to feel no more? (Yeah, yeah)
    Ain't no reachin' for the pills no more (yeah, yeah)
    One more and you're on the floor (yeah, yeah)
    I know that I didn't stand a chance (yeah, yeah, yeah)
    I don't think I'll ever live again (yeah, yeah, yeah)
    I'm only here by popular demand (yeah, yeah, yeah)
    I'm stayin' alive for the fans (yeah, yeah, yeah)

    Lost my heart, lost it all
    So much drama, hold the applause
    No soap opera, straight downfalls
    Listen to the nightmares call
