Well I got my heart up in a beautiful mess
I should've known better when I took the risk
To wreck myself and to gamble while broke
Shaking something mental at a loss for the words I'd once known
I traded two steps forward for three steps back
To get to know the meaning of showing respect
I found the pedestals and burned them down
To kill my idols and to bury the thoughts underground
I'm no longer deaf to the sounds

I'm hardly feeling human anymore
Enough to drag my body from the floor

Well I got my head up in a critical mess
Fighting like a demon in a shell I possess
Gnashing my teeth and speaking in tongues
Still shaking something mental at a loss of the words I'd once known
Something's rattling my bones

I'm hardly feeling human anymore
Enough to drag my body from the floor

I'm hardly feeling human anymore
Enough to drag my body from the floor

Stand to hold steady now
To take a breath and somehow
Take a step to begin again
After all we can only do out best

I'm hardly feeling human anymore
Enough to drag my body from the floor

I'm hardly feeling human anymore
Enough to drag my body from the floor

Stand and hold steady now
