Can you tell me?

Author:

I don’t want to burden anyone at all

But when everything is a call for help

And nobody is picking up the phone

It only serves to make me feel like nothing

Like the trash that I already think I am

Can you tell me?

Does anybody hear me?

Does anybody care?

Is anybody even listening?

Cause all these voices inside my head are getting the better of me

And if I’d had my way, I’m not sure I’d be here at all

But here I am fighting tooth and nail

Even just to put a smile on my face

Can you tell me?

Does anybody hear me?

Does anybody care?

Is anybody even listening?

I know it’s all just the voices inside my head

Pulling me back down

Trying to bury me under my own insecurities

So, can you tell me why it always feels so real

These voices

They’re getting louder now

But if its all inside my head

Can you tell me who it is that wants me dead?
