  • Face down, I fall to the floor
    Can't say I've never been here before
    So frustrating, debilitating
    This emptiness there must be more

    It's taking over me
    I don't know what to believe
    Forgetting everything
    That makes me, makes me real
    I find an enemy
    In every word that you say
    I won't let you replace
    What makes me, makes me real

    Start, stop, start over again
    Even though you know that this will end
    So frustrating, aggravating
    I lost myself when I let you in

    But I will find myself again
    So don't you say, that you understand

    It's taking over me
    I don't know what to believe
    Forgetting everything
    That makes me, makes me real
    I find an enemy
    In every word that you say
    I won't let you replace
    What makes me, makes me real

    You won't take the best of me
    Start, stop, start over again
    Even though you know that everything ends

    It's taking over me
    I don't know what to believe
    Forgetting everything
    That makes me, makes me real
    I find an enemy
    In every word that you say
    I won't let you replace
    What makes me, makes me real Writer/s: AARON PAULEY, ALAN ASHBY, AUSTIN CARLILE, DAVID BENDETH, PHIL MANANSALA, VALENTINO ARTEAGA
