I get lost in my mind and the waves pull me down
I try to ask for help but I can’t make a sound
I don’t want to hurt others with the pain that I feel
But sometimes I need reassurance that this is all real
Does this plane exist, am I really here?
Am I straying from love and moving towards fear?
I want to be grounded with my mind in the sky
Yet lately I can’t feel my feet, I’m going too high
When I sit with myself, I feel so much pain
I try to work through it and not go insane
But I get lost in my mind...and the waves pull me down
I try to swim up, I’m not ready to drown...
