Breathe No More

I've been looking in the mirror for so long
That I've come to believe my soul's on
The other side
All the little pieces falling, shatter
Shards of me,
Too sharp to put back together
Too small to matter
But big enough to cut me
Into so many little pieces
If I try to touch her,
And I bleed, I bleed
And I breathe, I breathe no more
Take a breath and I try to draw from
My spirit's well
Yet again you refuse to drink like
A stubborn child
Lie to me,
Convinces me that I've been sick
And all of this,
Will make sense when I get better
But I know the difference
Between myself and my reflection
I just can't help but wonder,
Which of us do you love?
So I bleed, I bleed
And I breathe, I breathe,
Bleed, I bleed
And I breathe, I breathe
I Breathe No More..


I linger in the doorway
Of alarm clocks screaming
Monsters calling my name
Let me stay
Where the wind will whisper to me
Where the raindrops, as they’re falling, tell a story

In my field of paper flowers
And candy clouds of lullaby (flowers)
I lie inside myself for hours
And watch my purple sky fly over me (flowers)

Don’t say I’m out of touch
With this rampant chaos - your reality
I know well what lies beyond my sleeping refuge
The nightmare I built my own world to escape

Swallowed up in the sound of my screaming
Cannot cease for the fear of silent nights
Oh, how I long for the deep sleep dreaming
The goddess of imaginary light
