lyrics

As hard as a peach pit, this lump in my throat
I’m scarred so be it, do I jump in this boat?
And admit out loud something’s gone wrong?
And I’ve known without doubt for far too long.

The monster is screaming, and rattles his cage
But no one can hear him while you battle his rage
You think someone will come and take care of you
But everyone’s numb and nowhere in view.

Well in the short term it’s easy, pretend it doesn’t exist
Ignore all the feelings, just don’t slit your wrist
But like debt or a lie, it’ll catch up to you
Forget and get high, but then what will you do?
As hard as a peach pit, this lump in my throat
I’m scarred so be it, do I jump in this boat?
And admit out loud something’s gone wrong?
And I’ve known without doubt for far too long.

Nothing’s spoken, but implied
Something’s broken inside.
