Lyrics:

There's so much apathy in the circles beneath your eyes
Omnipresent like a fucking god you don’t believe in

Help me not let you drown
My nightmares have found ground
There's no mistaking you're no longer scared to die
Helplessness bleeds on through
If I were in your shoes
I couldn't keep trying
So I'm sorry to ask it of you

Who you were is already buried six feet under
And when you scream I'm not alright

Was it better when you called out my lies?
Keeping you on drugs to keep you alive
It's making you survive without existing
And when you can't cry I'm not alright

I've always let you down
My nightmares have found ground
In realizing I'm the only thing keeping you here
Despair crippled your youth
What can I say or do
To shut off the trauma
That I can't stop from haunting you
If I were in your shoes
I couldn't keep trying
So I'm sorry to ask it of you

I keep letting you down 3x
I kept letting you down
I can't let you drown 3x
But I can't stop you now
How could they leave you alone
I can't leave u alone
How could I leave you alone
I won't leave you alone
I'll do whatever it takes
To keep your suicide away


I've always let you down
My nightmares have found ground
There's no mistaking you're no longer scared to die
[Exit]
