From Calm to Ill

I awoke only to find my lungs empty

And through the night, so it seems I'm not breathing.

And now my dreams are nothing like they were meant to be,

And I'm breaking down, I think I'm breaking down.

And I'm afraid to sleep because of what haunts me,

Such as living with the uncertainty

That I'll never find the words to say which would completely explain

Just how I'm breaking down

Someone come and, someone come and save my life

Maybe I'll sleep when I am dead,

But now it's like the night is taking sides

With all the worries that occupy the back of my mind

Could it be this misery will suffice?

I've become a simple souvenir of someone's kill

And like the sea, I'm constantly changing from calm to ill

Madness fills my heart and soul,

as if the great divide could swallow me whole

Oh, how I'm breaking down

Someone come and, someone come and save my life

Maybe I'll sleep when I am dead,

But now it's like the night is taking up sides

With all the worries that occupy the back of my mind

Could it be this misery will suffice.

Someone come and, someone come and save my life

Someone come and, someone come and save my life

Someone come and, someone come and save my life

Could it be this misery will suffice.
