  • Mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, uh
    I can't breathe (Chopsquad), I can't breathe, 999
    Waiting for the exhale
    I toss my pain with my wishes in a wishing well

    I can't breathe, I'm waiting for the exhale
    Toss my pain with my wishes in a wishing well
    Still no luck, but oh, well
    I still try even though I know I'm gon' fail
    Stress on my shoulders like a anvil
    Perky got me itching like a ant-hill
    Drugs killing me softly, Lauryn Hill
    Sometimes I don't know how to feel

    Ring-ring, phone call from depression
    You used my past and my memories as a weapon
    On the other line, I talk to addiction, huh
    Speakin' of the devil, all the drugs, I miss them
    This can't be real, is it fiction?
    Somethin' feels broke, need to fix it
    I cry out for help, do they listen?
    I'ma be alone until it's finished

    This is the part where I tell you I'm fine, but I'm lying
    I just don't want you to worry
    This is the part where I take all my feelings and hide 'em
    'Cause I don't want nobody to hurt me

    I can't breathe, I'm waiting for the exhale
    Toss my pain with my wishes in a wishing well
    Still no luck, but oh, well
    I still try even though I know I'm gon' fail
    Stress on my shoulders like a anvil
    Perky got me itching like a ant-hill
    Drugs killing me softly, Lauryn Hill
    Sometimes I don't know how to feel

    Sometimes I don't know how to feel
    Let's be for real
    If it wasn't for the pills, I wouldn't be here
    But if I keep taking these pills, I won't be here, yeah
    I just told y'all my secret, yeah
    It's tearing me to pieces
    I really think I need them
    I stopped taking the drugs and now the drugs take me

    This is the part where I tell you I'm fine, but I'm lying
    I just don't want you to worry
    This is the part where I take all my feelings and hide 'em
    'Cause I don't want nobody to hurt me

    I can't breathe, I'm waiting for the exhale
    Toss my pain with my wishes in a wishing well
    Still no luck, but oh, well
    I still try even though I know I'm gon' fail
    Stress on my shoulders like a anvil
    Perky got me itching like a ant-hill
    Drugs killing me softly, Lauryn Hill
