Lyrics

Breaking Point

Written By: Sleeping Shelby

I could say a million things + I could state a million ways you bled my life from an open wound and washed it all away
Cuz in my head I'm fighting battles that I can't win + Making room for all the trouble that I'm living in
Here we go + Now I know
The pain is all + Unbearable + You can't fix the mess + The games you played + Going my own way
I've hit my + Breaking Point + This is my + Well I've hit my
Time is passing by me slowly + Tearing my soul from me + Getting lost inside this world + Piece it together + I know that you're better (than that better than that)
Cuz in my head I'm fighting battles that I can't win + Making room for all the trouble that I'm living in
Here I go + Now you know
The pain is all + Unbearable + All that shit you pressed + the price to pay + Going my own way
I've hit my + Breaking Point + This is my + Well I've hit my

(Breaking Point + I've hit my Breaking Point)
I've hit my + Breaking Point + This is my + Well I've hit my
Cuz in my head + I'm fighting battles + that I cannot win + Well I'm making room + for all the trouble that I'm living in + I'm pusing on (pushing on) + I'm pushing on

Lie The World

Written By: Sleeping Shelby

Why can’t we forget the things we thought of yesterday + holding back on all the words we thought we couldn’t say + I can barely speak or think my mind is just to weak + but every time you think
Why can’t we just lie + to everything and everyone alive
My reflection in the mirror is staring back at me + wishing I was someone else it could be pleased to see + fade me out of all your lies and everything you speak + just tell me what you think
Why can’t we just lie + to everything and everyone alive + I cannot believe you would know I would fall from the inside + so why can’t we just lie + just lie about it all
We had thought no one would ever be + so quick to step up + to the tension building up from the inside + I have lost the hope that we will make it out alive + but you seem to think otherwise
Why can’t we just lie + to everything and everyone alive + I cannot believe you would know I would fall from the inside + so why can’t we just lie + just lie about it all

Guardrail

Written By: Sleeping Shelby

I hit the guardrail + clearly went over the edge + grasp the world to know it’s there + only god can save me + stare up the sky above it’s me + looking down to my reality + my world flattens out + all in a second gone by in time.
I’m starring in a world I can’t escape + Like a switch you flip the moment turns in I’m late + all I’ve ever known all I ever gave + flashed before my eyes
I hit the guard rail + I move an inch I move a mile stop on a dime + quick step to edge + don’t step off the ledge + you share the horror with me and see the light that’s gone inside and by the sound you wreck and flinch and twitch away your dreams to the night that’s never gonna end
I’m starring in a world I can’t escape + Like a switch you flip the moment turns in I’m late + all I’ve ever known all I ever gave + flashed before my eyes
I hit the guardrail + clearly went over the edge + grasp the world to know it’s there + only god can save me
I’m starring in a world I can’t escape + Like a switch you flip the moment turns in I’m late + all I’ve ever known all I ever gave + flashed before my eyes
