I'm a natural disaster...

Natural Disaster

There's a tornado in my head,

There's a tornado in my head, launching around debris,

There's a tornado in my head, launching around debris. It's strange to look at others,

There's a tornado in my head, launching around debris. It's strange to look at others, knowing they can't see,

the mess that is my mind.

the mess that is my mind. I hide behind my smile,

the mess that is my mind. I hide behind my smile, but look closely and you'll notice,

the mess that is my mind. I hide behind my smile, but look closely and you'll notice, me swallowing the bile.

Look closely and you'll notice,

Look closely and you'll notice me holding back the tears,

Look closely and you'll notice me holding back the tears, but it's okay, I'm a pro, I promise,

Look closely and you'll notice me holding back the tears, but it's okay, I'm a pro, I promise, I've been doing it for years.

Holding back the flood behind my eyes,

Holding back the flood behind my eyes, even though sometimes I fail,

Holding back the flood behind my eyes, even though sometimes I fail, try not to let my emotions out,

Holding back the flood behind my eyes, even though sometimes I fail, try not to let my emotions out, but alas, to no avail.

Because there's a hurricane in my stomach,

Because there's a hurricane in my stomach, that refuses to let me breathe.

Because there's a hurricane in my stomach, that refuses to let me breathe. It causes me to fall apart sometimes,

Because there's a hurricane in my stomach, that refuses to let me breathe. It causes me to fall apart sometimes, snips the hair-thin string,

that was holding me together,

that was holding me together, keeping me from tumbling off the cliff,

that was holding me together, keeping me from tumbling off the cliff, but it always gets cut then I fall,

that was holding me together, keeping me from tumbling off the cliff, but it always gets cut then I fall, never knowing if,

I'll ever escape from this landslide,

I'll ever escape from this landslide, that has become my life.

I'll ever escape from this landslide, that has become my life. leading me to lose it,

I'll ever escape from this landslide, that has become my life. leading me to lose it, give into my instinct to pick up the knife

But the cuts are never straight,

But the cuts are never straight, due to the earthquake in my hands.

But the cuts are never straight, due to the earthquake in my hands. I swear, they shake so bad...

But the cuts are never straight, due to the earthquake in my hands. I swear, they shake so bad... Sorry, I don't think I can,

live another day,

live another day, with this sinkhole in my heart,

live another day, with this sinkhole in my heart, God, please, someone help me,

live another day, with this sinkhole in my heart, God, please, someone help me, I'm falling apart...
