tell me what i should
cause you always seem to see,

show me where ta go
cause i miss my better me,

oh look, there's my conscious,
twas shattered to thirds
cause heavy is guilt
and mines not built
but here were its last words:

"i exist
but im not here
i think
but i say nothing"

"i hear
but i dont listen, dear
i live
but im not breathing"

point out all the wrong ideas
cause my cuckoo head's a lie

show me how to love again
cause MR. Heart committed suicide

others tell me "get over it,"
"dont bother," they insist"
cause nothing's fair
although i swear
that im pretty sure Death is"

wake up in sorrow
everyday like tomorrow

cause am i or am i not?
my better half is what i sought

i'll turn my mistakes into redemption
just like how apples turn into pie
but sun shines i can't see
and ground melts beneath me
oh well, that's fine, at least i had tried

Oh falling,
for love, for chance, for a sense of acceptance

dreaming,
of changes, losses, a day full of causes

yes you hate me, yes you do,
but hate's a strong word, that is true

but because of you i would decree
we're too different yet we both agree:

"i exist
but im not here
i think
but i say nothing"

"i hear
but i dont listen, dear
i live
but im not breathing"
