lyrics

I’m burning at both ends
The smoke gets in my eyes
They said it would get easier
They said it, but they lied
Why are you so distant?
Why are you so vain?
I feel my body numbing
At least there isn’t pain

I'm living in a haze
Waiting for the weather to change
Life is so exhausting
And I just want to sleep
I finally found my place
I know where I belong
My home is the third rail
Paying for what I did wrong to you

Did I make you feel nervous
Did I make you regret
Did I really have purpose
Or am I better off dead

Born with depression
Ever since I was aware
The world seemed so foreign to me
Like I've been sick
Since the day of birth
Living in another world
Where I can live able and free

I must've spent a decade...
Giving more than I get
I know I’ve been dying
Since I’ve been alive
I guess I'm just too proud
Too proud to say I've lost
But I guess since nothing's free
This is our cost

For a moment...
I heard...
myself talking in my sleep
Fraying at the seams
Leaving me undone
I know I'm just a shellI
But I used to be someone

Did I make you feel nervous
Did I make you regret
Did I really have purpose
Or am I better off dead
Have you come to watch me break
Have you come see me fray
I don't I'll ever change
I'm only here to fill up space

I'm only here for your attention
I'm only here to make you feel okay
I'm only here for entertainment
I'm only here to fill up space
