about

A song about dealing with the darker states of mind. Much love and gratitude to all who have helped me with mine.

lyrics

Shedding my skin
For the first time
I feel ready to begin
Unravelling
I paint it all black
Ought to know by now that the hardest attack
Is the one from within

But this is just how it is now
There's a cloud
You're allowed sometimes to feel it
But don't fight it out
Let if flow
So
Like some kind of rollercoaster ride
You don't have to keep it all inside

Give up all hope
It's always been
The tightest rope
That reels you in
You set yourself up
Nothing's right
And nothing's ever enough
So you keep digging

But this is just how it is now
There's a cloud
You're allowed sometimes to feel it
But don't fight it out
Let if flow
So
Like some kind of rollercoaster ride
You don't have to keep it all inside

Get it all out
You can dance
And you can sing and shout
But don't stop digging
It's so easy to crawl
Under the bottomless sea
While the world goes on living

But this is just how it is now
There's a cloud
You're allowed sometimes to breathe in
But don't fight it out
Let if flow
So
Like some kind of rollercoaster ride
You don't have to keep it all inside
