lyrics

i'm going on the 4th day of staring at the ceiling
it's funny how our eyes perceive things when we stop blinking
it's by my choice, or at least i think it is
but i've become somewhat aware that i can't move my hands

screaming from the inside
it's driving me crazy
shouting when no one hears
it's maddening, it's maddening

i'm stuck inside a coma
i can see but i'm still blind
i tried so hard to be alive
i can't get outside my mind

the paralysis is the hardest part when you only want to move
and ideas form and then slip away 'cause i can't get them out
the people i love are just within my reach
but i'm stuck in this place with a person i hate, we've just never got along

screaming from the inside
it's driving me crazy
shouting when no one hears
it's maddening, it's maddening

i'm stuck inside a coma
i can see but i'm still blind
i tried so hard to be alive
i can't get outside my mind
i'm stuck inside a coma
i can look but i can't find
if only i could change the past
i can wish but i won't die

he's stable again
he's on the table again
he's unconscious again
he's unstable again

i can only vaguely remember what put me here
i know i was in the bathroom hiding from my friends
and then it clicked and i felt sick and my stomach began to twist
i forced a hot shot on myself and then i cut my wrists

i'm stuck inside a coma
i can see but i'm still blind
i tried so hard to be alive
i can't get outside my mind
i'm stuck inside a coma
i can look but i can't find
if only i could change the past
i can wish but i won't die
