here i am , are you ready?
breaking into peaces ,
trying to hold steady.
so here i am , are you ready ?
eyes wide open , mouth sewed shut .
blade held high , my smile has been broken.
so here i am , are you ready?
bleeding eyes, cut up lips . im made for nothing ,
and losing this. so here i am ,
are you ready . falling on the ground ,
trying to hold steady . so here i am , are you ready ?.
the knife lays on the floor , head held high ,
and still i cry . so here i am ,are you ready ?
trying to hold up the fate i have lost , i ask myself
...am i worth this? blood spilled , arms wrecked , eyes fled ,
play dead. so here i am, are you ready? trying not to cry,
and trying to stay still . lost in this game , staying the same ,
i say to you , im sorry . so here i am, are you ready ?
fighting to stay here, and trying to hold steady so here i am ,
are you ready ?
