The Dark Side (Trigger warning: Suicidal thoughts)
There is a place where only shadows lie
Whispering to themselves, slow and sly
Conjuring up fears we never thought might
Keep us up every single night.
This is where our sorrows reside
Scratching the walls of our empty minds
Screaming hoarsely until their throats run dry
Begging to be released, out into the sky
I can still hear them screaming
Telling me they can’t breathe
Let me out! They’re pleading
I want to be free
I cradle them in my heart
Shushing them inside
You’re not going anywhere I say
You’re the reason I’m dying
I don’t want to live anymore
I don’t want to breathe this air anymore
Every cell in my body rebels with hurt
I’ve never been so unsure
Is it easier to stay or is it easier to go?
I don’t wanna know...
Cause I know that I’m never ever going to change,
And you know that you’re always gonna stay the same.
