Sleep Not Suicide

She is your mirror image
of all your little secrets
mocking the lies
in a pretty reflection you created

but now everything is crashing
falling and breaking
slowly slipping
suffocating

Pre-chorus: Your hearts closed off
protected by walls you keep putting up

Chorus: Cold hard floors
are the only hands
that'll catch your tears
in the end
you think to much, tend
not to say enough
open your eyes
you're still breathing
but you're not alive
this omnipresent silence
is getting the best of you
ripping parts of your soul away
whats your real reason to stay
bright lights flash
you better move
those aren't the gates to heaven it's just everything you'll lose

V2: Wasted time, and heavy breathing
somewhere in those eyes your hearts still beating
looking for a pulse
a redemption from this flat line
don't be so quick to sell your soul
to them these silly games never get old

these chains don't bind you
it's all an illusion
just scream and I'll find you
but don't come to conclusions
of it's all over
we're still here, looking over your shoulder

Pre-chorus: Your hearts closed off
protected by walls you keep putting up

Chorus: Cold hard floors
are the only hands
that'll catch your tears
in the end
you think to much, tend
not to say enough
open your eyes
you're still breathing
but you're not alive
this omnipresent silence
is getting the best of you
ripping parts of your soul away
whats your real reason to stay
bright lights flash
you better move
those aren't the gates to heaven it's just everything you'll lose

Bridge: You ran away
from fears and tears
from all you had and once held dear
you burned so many bridges and crossed so many lines
you held the flames of life in your hands while you cried
set a fire in your soul
watched it burn then let it die

bright lights flash
you better move
those aren't the gates of heaven
it's just everything you'll lose
