I can't breathe (Final)

I can't breathe,

I can't breathe, The anxiety, it creeps up on me;

I can't breathe, The anxiety, it creeps up on me; Without my ability to breathe, I cannot be what people need and want me to be.

I can't breathe,

I can't breathe, Someone,

I can't breathe, Someone, help me,

I can't breathe, Someone, help me, I'm stuck in these emotions of turmoil and they're rising,

I can't breathe, Someone, help me, I'm stuck in these emotions of turmoil and they're rising, Rising,

I can't breathe, Someone, help me, I'm stuck in these emotions of turmoil and they're rising, Rising, Until I am lost in this place,

I can't breathe, Someone, help me, I'm stuck in these emotions of turmoil and they're rising, Rising, Until I am lost in this place, Lost and never to be found.

I can't breathe, The walls are closing in on me,

I can't breathe, The walls are closing in on me, The walls I used to feel safe about,

I can't breathe, The walls are closing in on me, The walls I used to feel safe about, They're turning against me,

I can't breathe, The walls are closing in on me, The walls I used to feel safe about, They're turning against me, And making me unable to breathe.

I'm stuck in a rolling ocean,

I'm stuck in a rolling ocean, A striking river,

I'm stuck in a rolling ocean, A striking river, An uncalm lake,

I'm stuck in a rolling ocean, A striking river, An uncalm lake, Stuck at the bottom with no air to help me.

I'm stuck in the bottomless pit,

I'm stuck in the bottomless pit, Of turmoil that no one can help me out of,

I'm stuck in the bottomless pit, Of turmoil that no one can help me out of, I am stuck without a guide,

I'm stuck in the bottomless pit, Of turmoil that no one can help me out of, I am stuck without a guide, Without a light to guide me through,

I'm stuck in the bottomless pit, Of turmoil that no one can help me out of, I am stuck without a guide, Without a light to guide me through, To free me from this turmoil and tornado of emotions.

I can't breathe: I try to breathe,

I can't breathe: I try to breathe, But I am stuck too deep,

I can't breathe: I try to breathe, But I am stuck too deep, Without air,

I can't breathe: I try to breathe, But I am stuck too deep, Without air, Without a light,

I can't breathe: I try to breathe, But I am stuck too deep, Without air, Without a light, Without a single fright,

I can't breathe: I try to breathe, But I am stuck too deep, Without air, Without a light, Without a single fright, Because I have always been here.

I am stuck in this neverending ocean of feelings that cut like rocks,

I am stuck in this neverending ocean of feelings that cut like rocks, That hurries on the trees,

I am stuck in this neverending ocean of feelings that cut like rocks, That hurries on the trees, Their vines flowing down into the water to reach me,

I am stuck in this neverending ocean of feelings that cut like rocks, That hurries on the trees, Their vines flowing down into the water to reach me, Thinking I can escape and trying to flee,

I am stuck in this neverending ocean of feelings that cut like rocks, That hurries on the trees, Their vines flowing down into the water to reach me, Thinking I can escape and trying to flee, But the ropey vines grab me,

They pull me down and I cannot get free; My thrashing and kicking spree,

They pull me down and I cannot get free; My thrashing and kicking spree, Kicking up lost hope,

They pull me down and I cannot get free; My thrashing and kicking spree, Kicking up lost hope, Watching it skitter across the dark and blurry ocean floor,

They pull me down and I cannot get free; My thrashing and kicking spree, Kicking up lost hope, Watching it skitter across the dark and blurry ocean floor, My hair whipping around me as I struggle,

Trying to free myself from these agonizing vines that hold me hostage,

Trying to free myself from these agonizing vines that hold me hostage, These vines being my dark and negative feelings,

Trying to free myself from these agonizing vines that hold me hostage, These vines being my dark and negative feelings, Pulling me down,

Trying to free myself from these agonizing vines that hold me hostage, These vines being my dark and negative feelings, Pulling me down, Down,

Trying to free myself from these agonizing vines that hold me hostage, These vines being my dark and negative feelings, Pulling me down, Down, Down,

Until there's nothing but darkness and my cascading salty tears that mingle with the salty ocean,

Until there's nothing but darkness and my cascading salty tears that mingle with the salty ocean, Taking away the saltiness of my tears to be replaced with more vines,

Until there's nothing but darkness and my cascading salty tears that mingle with the salty ocean, Taking away the saltiness of my tears to be replaced with more vines, Tangling and wrapping around me without a sound escaping me.

This place plays with my emotions,

This place plays with my emotions, Turning my feelings against me,

This place plays with my emotions, Turning my feelings against me, Without a hope of them ceasing,

This place plays with my emotions, Turning my feelings against me, Without a hope of them ceasing, I am lost,

This place plays with my emotions, Turning my feelings against me, Without a hope of them ceasing, I am lost, Lost in this turmoil.

This is my prison,

This is my prison, A place of closing walls,

This is my prison, A place of closing walls, Inhaling but yet coming up with nothing.

This is my prison, A place of closing walls, Inhaling but yet coming up with nothing. A wait for something,

This is my prison, A place of closing walls, Inhaling but yet coming up with nothing. A wait for something, A call perhaps,

This is my prison, A place of closing walls, Inhaling but yet coming up with nothing. A wait for something, A call perhaps, From the light that shines dark

This is my prison, A place of closing walls, Inhaling but yet coming up with nothing. A wait for something, A call perhaps, From the light that shines dark Burning here in this place,

Here there is no star,

Here there is no star, To guide me the right way,

Here there is no star, To guide me the right way, My eyes trying to keep themselves shut,

Here there is no star, To guide me the right way, My eyes trying to keep themselves shut, from the darkness around me,

Here there is no star, To guide me the right way, My eyes trying to keep themselves shut, from the darkness around me, As I dive into my own darkness, Staying here for all eternity,

In this prison of walls and perhaps a sanctuary,

In this prison of walls and perhaps a sanctuary, Of feelings and emotions,

In this prison of walls and perhaps a sanctuary, Of feelings and emotions, Hidden so deep,

In this prison of walls and perhaps a sanctuary, Of feelings and emotions, Hidden so deep, From the eyes of which none can receive a peek,

In this prison of walls and perhaps a sanctuary, Of feelings and emotions, Hidden so deep, From the eyes of which none can receive a peek, The things keeping me here, Lost in the sea.

The closing walls,

The closing walls, The starving ocean and the striving vines,

The closing walls, The starving ocean and the striving vines, Here in my ocean of a prison,

The closing walls, The starving ocean and the striving vines, Here in my ocean of a prison, I make no peep.

The closing walls, The starving ocean and the striving vines, Here in my ocean of a prison, I make no peep. Here,

The closing walls, The starving ocean and the striving vines, Here in my ocean of a prison, I make no peep. Here, I cannot breathe.
