I am giving up
I am giving up slowly
This may be the death of me
Just have to get out of here
I need to escape
I been housing all these scars and insecurities
The walls are closing in on me
All the pictures and the windows and walls are closing in on me
I don’t know what to do
All alone don’t know how long I can hold on
Just sitting on the ledge waiting for the next move to make
one little step and life can be lost
stand up take a step and now im gone.
