lyrics

Pumping hard and heavy inside this chest
is the heart that never wins while at its best
when every little move you make looks easy.

The attraction in carefree confidence
admiring the ways of your brilliance
always falling second to those around me.

Feeling trampled in the shadow of your self-esteem
showing off your superiority
belittling my worth as I fight for safety.
Am I not worth saving?

I'll keep trying through these tears (you better try, boy)
Waitng for first place to appear (you better try, boy)
This weakened body keeps guiding my heart where it should run.

Hidden within corners inside this head
are the phrases of a feeling that were left unsaid
but piecing them together has never been easy.

Always falling short when I get real close
opting into silence as your words flow
captivating statements that came so freely.

Perhaps I gave myself the proper length of rope
preventing any speech while around my throat
belittling my worth as I fight for safety.
Am I not worth saving?

I'll keep trying through these tears (you better try, boy)
Waitng for first place to appear (you better try, boy)
This weakened body keeps guiding my head where it should run.

Run! This fragile frame that I've become,
deteriorative from defeat of chasing any dream
you obtained to get the best of me,
has always been encompassing
a heart so strong and tells me I should...

Run! Beating faster to prolong
what little durability is left of this body
exposing every weakening
thought that dashes rapidly
apart from one that forces me to....

Run! without realilizing once
that the finish line is where I'll end my suffering
destroying all of my body
stealing away victory
from your fucking hands. Until then...... Run!
