Earth to Self

lyrics

Shake me, keep me here with you
If I start to slip away, don't let me go
It's getting harder to control now, and yes it happens every day
Everything else loses meaning, my reality fades
The chain on the door, the static on the screen
The lamp on the nightstand sputtering, the chill of his grin
The scent of his spit, the grip of his hands
The wave of disorder, the heat from his breath

I strive to be the type of man you need me to be
To sustain these violent walls from closing in
Leave it behind, get on with this life
To finally sleep devoid of the dreams of immorality

He must be aware of the power he holds
He must still believe it's our little secret
But I can't let go knowing he's breathing
No, I can't let go knowing he's out there

My greatest fear? I won't return
And forever I'll be robbed of all sense of veracity

I'm orbiting around myself - I wish to land
From afar I watch my world spill from my hand
I long to make contact
Earth to self, are you in there?
Breaking up, losing signal
Earth to self, are you in there?

My body greets the blows without the sense of pain
Into the void, emotion bounces off again
I long to make contact
Earth to self, are you in there?
Breaking up, losing signal
Earth to self, are you in there?
