lyrics

Say something, say something you'll regret
Do something no one in their right mind would expect
Running through your head, that's how your paranoias fed
Running through your head, That's how the poison spreads
Now You're blind to what's there
So you focus on what isn't
Open old wounds, rub salt on incisions
Just another day, stay in bed, what's the use?
Remember every lie now you can't forget the truth
I've got a crutch but they tell me not to use them
So why they writing scripts, trying to sell me a solution?
I didn't choose this, I can't fight it
I can't see a way out, I ain't psychic
It ain't like this shit is on the surface
I can't see my doctor and show him where it's hurting
All I can do is smile and tell you that I'm fine
Hands tied, walk blind, all I got is time

[Hook]
I can't hear them anymore
If home is where the heart is, I'm living in the basement
Wasted every day, now you wonder where the days went
I can't hear them any more
I can't hear them, I can't take it
Wasted every day, now you wonder where the days went

This too shall pass, that's what they tell me
But nothing anybody says is really helping
Give me a room with the lights out
Where I can stay till it's me and the moon and it's night out
You'll find out that I'm not a nice person
My biggest fear, different day, a different version
I can't hear what you're saying, come closer
So I can push back, snap, and say it's over
I want someone to care but I don't want them around me
If they ever try, I let em leave me where they found me
The days come and go, fade into the next
Looking for a reason so I blame it on the stress
Blame it on my job, blame it on my huge debt
Blame it on the fact I don't know what I wanna do yet
All I can do is smile and tell you that I'm fine
Hands tied, Walk blind, All I got is time

[Hook]
I can't hear them anymore
If home is where the heart is, I'm living in the basement
Wasted every day, now you wonder where the days went
I can't hear them any more
I can't hear them, I can't take it
Wasted every day, now you wonder where the days went
