I drew a picture I could sell
A broken image of myself
It turns around and mirrors me
Then it fades out

This empty image of myself
A different view from someone else
It turns and slowly counts to three then it fades out
Then it fades out

Why can't I be myself?
I've tried - still I need someone to help me out this time
So I'll never suffocate again

This lonely bed that I have made
I pray that nothing stays the same
Forget these useless memories
Let 'em fade out, let 'em fade out

Why can't I be myself?
I've tried - still I need someone to help me out this time

Stop me from breathing you in
So I'll never suffocate again

Let me be, just let me be,
Just let me be, just let me be
Just let me be, just let me be,
Just let me be, let me be myself

Stop me from breathing you in
So I'll never suffocate again
