Every morning I wake up
Heavy rocks in my chest
No thoughts in my head
Your voice
Nothing else.

Straight to fear and panic
Worried about how to act
Can I wear this shirt?

Every day I do less for me
Make fewer decisions
You are pulling the strings
I'm going through the motions
Nothing else

Always crying inside
Worried the world can see
Can I stand this way?

Now and then a song will come to me
I try to live in that peace
Take the beating
Clean up the mess
We are perfect and happy
Nothing else

The pain is crushing
Worried it’s all my fault
Can I listen to this song?

Every Night as I fall asleep
Still rocks in my chest
No thoughts in my head
Your voice
Nothing else
