I cannot take this anymore
Saying everything I've said before
All these words they make no sense
I find bliss in ignorance
Less I hear the less you'll say
You'll find out that anyway
Just like before...

Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break

I find the answers aren't so clear
Wish I could find a way to disappear
All these thoughts they make no sense
I found bliss in ignorance
Nothing seems to go away
Over and over again
Just like before...

Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
I'm about to break

Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
Break break break break break

Shut up when I'm talking to you
Shut up shut up shut up
Shut up when I'm talking to you
Shut up shut up shut up shut up
I'm about to break

Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
I'm about to break

Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to

BREAK!

    well ...now this song mean something to me...
    b4,
    in my primary@middle school, everyone respect me bcoz i was the best student and nobody wants to make me angry bcoz if they do, they will go home with swollen face (the teacher don't care).
    But now,
    in high school, i was like a queen that has lost her status bcoz

    no 1:now i was in the best class and everybody is clever and that makes me not the 'only one' anymore.

    no 2:if somebody makes me angry, i have to calm down and i had to think twice b4 i punch their face coz THE SCHOOL use the stupid demerit mark system!!If i have made something bad, there...it goes...THE DEMERIT MARK IS AFTER ME!!!

    OH! I CANNOT TAKE THIS ANYMORE!!!I HATE TO GO TO SCHOOL!!!BUT WHAT CAN I DO?I HAVE TO WAIT TILL 6 MORE YEARS TO GET OUT & FIND A JOB OR STRAIGHT TO THE UNIVERSITY!!!
