I’m dying behind this wall.
Please don’t let this be my fate.
I had hopes, dreams, and feelings too.
Why won’t you help me?

Tear down these walls.
They are keeping me from seeing you.
They are keeping me from seeing the truth.
I need to make these bricks fall one by one.
I feel rejected.
Why won’t you help me?

Wait, come back.
No! Don’t leave!
Where are you going?
Why are you leaving me here?
I need you!
Why won’t you help me?

I need an oxygen mask.
I’m losing a pulse.

You’re going nowhere.
I’m stuck here.
I need your help.
Take this brick.
Help break this wall away.
Why won’t you help me?

I’m not worth anything to you am I?
Please tell me you love me.
Please tell me you care.
Then help me get out of here.
Let me escape from this.
Why won’t you help me?

No! Don’t take a brick down.
Put them all back up!
Add to the wall.
Make it taller.
Cover me over.
Why won’t you help me?

Let me die here.
You won’t care anyways.
I don’t matter to you.
I don’t matter to anyone.
I might as well suffocate behind this.
Why won’t you help me?
