Where am I? Who am I? What am I now?

Uncertainty rattles around inside me, every day I lose a little more footing
Can I ever get a grip? Can I ever just surrender?

And while I know I’m making things difficult, I can’t seem to stray from this path I’ve laid out for myself
I lay here, unable to move, paralyzed by that very thought

How does anyone do it? Just go on without looking back?
Well this shit is weighing me down, and every day is
Grinding, just grinding

I can’t be the only one, who thinks this way, who thinks this much, who thinks this hard,
who tries this hard to find a way to rid himself of this weight that is time.
Calling, calling, calling for help, in a cavern that’s too dense to move.
Holding, ever clinging, to the time before I had to move this weight.

Life was so simple, it was a breeze
When Mom would put on records while I helped her clean
The sun shined brighter in that house
Remember when I fell down the stairs?
She picked me up with her loving arms, and I was back to playing, without a care
The sun shined brighter in that house

Enjoyment is gone, replaced by reaction; a practical excuse to place function over form at all costs.
Function over form, making it easier to shut the door.

But where am I going? Where is this leading?
How can I keep falling into a nonexistent space with no hope for escape?
I’ll find my way out, I always do, but every time, part of me stays behind.

Bullshit! This is bullshit! I’m fine! Stronger and wiser than I’ve ever been before!
Get me out of my head, pull me out of this hole, I don’t want to drown in the echoes that kill me
“I’m not a kid anymore, so why is life such a bore?”
I’m not a kid anymore, and that makes life such a bore.

Forcing myself to breathe
