we end up regretting the things we don't try

Show me something more, something that I've missed
And I'll show you something hidden inside all of this
A dark shadow and single breath of light
Waiting for us all to either lay down or fight
I can't help it, this is who I am
And when I look around me
Everything spins straight to the ground
In that crowd no one seems to care
No one hears me shouting
Get me the hell out of here
Swallowed up, except a single darkened face
May be my salvation and only open door to this place
My face is burning and the world is out of body
And everything around me tells me I may be going crazy

So will you be here to break the fall?
If not I may have to break after all
Even so, this still may be the death of me;
covered up and left with nothing here
but bumps and bruises covering the insides of me
Heal me, hurt me, as long as you stay
Need some sort of substanance to get me through the day

Look inside the halls there, tell me what you see
Except I already know those bones in all their ghostly glory.
Help me know you, but for hurt I'm also seeking
Because this place never lets me leave it.
So when it all flows freely around
Maybe that is only that lonesome solid ground
And love is lost but still so alive
And maybe now I know thats what I need to barely survive.
