She seemed dressed in all of me
Stretched across my shame
All the torment and the pain
Leaked through and covered me
I'd do anything to have her to myself
Just to have her for myself
Now I don't know what to do
I don't know what to do
When she makes me sad

She is everything to me
The unrequited dream
A song that no one sings
The unattainable
She's a myth that I have to believe in
All I need to make it real is one more reason
And I don't know what to do
I don't know what to do
When she makes me sad

But I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me
(X 3)

I catch in my throat
Choke
Torn into pieces
I won't... no
I don't want to be this

But I won't let this build up inside of me
(Won't let this build up inside of me)
I won't let this build up inside of me
(Won't let this build up inside of me)
I won't let this build up inside of me
(Won't let this build up inside of me)
I won't let this build up inside of me
(Won't let this build up inside of me... won't let this build up inside of me)

(Sheee)
She isn't real
(Won't let this build up inside of me)
I can't make her real
(Won't let this build up inside of me)
She isn't real
(Won't let this build up inside of me)
I can't make her real
(Won't let this build up inside of me)

    DudeNikki, if you don't find any sense in this song, you're just a dumbass...

    This song is even more filled with sense than the fisrt part... Unlike the first part, screamed and all, this version turns to be more calm and mellow. Corey places himself like a narrator, reading a story, or a book that a guy wrote, he is much more detached. To me, the part 2 expresses more a detached vision, it's like if the character was conscious of him being crazy, he just accepts it and tries to express it.
    The character speaks calmly about what he feels, mentaly and physically, like if he was in therapy, speaking from the deep end of an hospital.

    I think this is about a guy that needs and wants a girl who has been in and out of his life so he needs to believe that she isn't real to him so he can be done with the want of having her because it has consumed him completely
