She whispers, ‘just breathe’ The only way out, is through Should you fall beneath Truth laid bare for you The only way out is through Weighted pain pulls you under Truth laid bare for you Ire turned surrender Weighted pain pulls you under The solace of nothingness Ire turned surrender Lungs filled with emptiness The solace of nothingness How easy to just let go Lungs filled with emptiness No grievance toward the throe Your pain, your grief, your sorrow Should you fall beneath Today renders tomorrow She whispers, ‘just breathe’

This reminds me of a show I watched called The Rescue Mediums. They recant similar words to gather trapped souls and help them find the light. Very beautiful.
