Breaking Down

I Prevail – Breaking Down

I think I think too much,
I’m a little bit paranoid, I think I’m breaking,
Maybe it’s in my blood,
Got a pain that I can’t avoid, I think I’m breaking down.

Hate every single second, minute, hour, every day,
Person in the mirror, they won’t let me feel a thing,
Keep me focused on my problems, I’m addicted to the pain,
Everybody’s out to get you.

I guess I never noticed how it came creeping in,
My enemy emotion but I can’t sink or swim,
I say I’m feeling hopeless, they give me medicine,
They give me medicine, they give me medicine!

I think I think too much,
I’m a little bit paranoid, I think I’m breaking,
Maybe it’s in my blood,
Got a pain that I can’t avoid, I think I’m breaking.

Down, I think I’m breaking,
Down, I think I’m breaking,
I think I think too much,
I’m a little bit paranoid, I think I’m breaking down.

Lies, every time they ask me I just tell ’em that I’m fine,
Try to hide my demons but they only multiply.
Keep me running from the voices on repeat inside my mind,
Everybody fucking hates you.

I guess I never noticed how it came creeping in,
My enemy emotion but I can’t sink or swim,
I say I’m feeling hopeless but no one’s listening,
But no one’s listening, but no one’s listening!

I think I think too much,
I’m a little bit paranoid, I think I’m breaking,
Maybe it’s in my blood,
Got a pain that I can’t avoid, I think I’m breaking.

Down, I think I’m breaking,
Down, I think I’m breaking,
I think I think too much,
I’m a little bit paranoid, I think I’m breaking down.

I don’t really like myself,
I don’t really like myself,
I don’t really like myself,
I don’t really like myself,
I think I’m breaking down.

Lifelines

I Prevail – Lifelines

When I open my eyes and see the lines that live on the life I left behind,
I feel disconnected from the place that I call home.
When I try to rewind I can’t design a way to go back to that place and time.
I remember that moment that changed everything I know.
Everything I know.

Cut up into pieces, looking for a reason.
Who’s gonna be there to make me whole?
I can’t stop the bleeding,
Looking for a meaning,
Throw me a line and bring me back home.
Won’t you say something, say something?
I can’t do this alone.
Cut up into pieces, looking for a reason,
Throw me a line and bring me back home.

I live with all the goodbyes, doesn’t matter how hard I try!
They end in long nights spent up looking back on my life!
I feel disconnected from the place that I call home.
They hit me from the blind side, caught me in the blink of an eye!
Just like a landmine going off inside my mind!
I remember the moment that changed everything I know.

Cut up into pieces, looking for a reason.
Who’s gonna be there to make me whole?
I can’t stop the bleeding,
Looking for a meaning,
Throw me a line and bring me back home.
Won’t you say something, say something?
I can’t do this alone.
Cut up into pieces, looking for a reason,
Throw me a line and bring me back home.

This life can cut like a knife!
It leaves lines and divides!
This life can cut like a knife!
It leaves lines that divide a before and an after!

Cut up into pieces, looking for a reason.
Who’s gonna be there to make me whole?
I can’t stop the bleeding,
Looking for a meaning,
Throw me a line and bring me back home.
Won’t you say something, say something now?
I can’t do this alone!
Cut up into pieces, looking for a reason,
Throw me a line and bring me back home.

When I open my eyes and see the lines,
I see the lines.
Now they live on the life I left behind,
I see the lines.
