Make it stop for I am drowning
There is a weight on my chest and I can't breathe
I'm clinging on
But to what?
My finger tips brush nothing but air
And I am falling
Below is nothing but endless darkness
No one is here to save me
All they did was push me
Make it stop for it is hurting
Like a knife that has pierced my heart
Then once more and once more
A never ending loop of misery
Now darkness has engulfed me
And I am still falling
I have nowhere to turn
Every side despair clutches on to me
It sticks and it won't let go
I am suspended, trapped
I am dying
I feel it inside
Would peace follow?
I just want to make it stop
