lyrics

My face is half out, half in the light
It's covered by the dark parts of my mind
Can't see as well as I would like
But maybe there's some beauty in feeling so blind

It kills to show that my brain has no boundaries
So take it slow, 'cause my mind's become haunted

I'm not one for self-pity
I'm swimming in sadness
Got stuck in the shadows
I know you won't understand
But try and understand
Drown me in empathy

I've got my conscience pitching tents
On either side of my own head
They're digging holes into my chest
They're trying to fill the space so I'll feel less
I’m soaked white noise all the time
A sound of silence I can’t hide
I keep a close eye on what’s mine
If I lose anymore of me I’ll cross off my last lifeline

I'm not one for self-pity
I'm swimming in sadness
Got stuck in the shadows
I know you won't understand
But try and understand
Drown me in empathy

I gave it time, but there's no spine left in me
I've got control of controlling the mystery
It kills to show that my brain has no boundaries
So take it slow, 'cause my mind's become haunted
I'm not one for self-pity
I'm swimming in sadness
Got stuck in the shadows
I know you won't understand
But try and understand
Drown me in empathy
