When I wake up I’m afraid, somebody else might take my place
When I wake up I’m afraid, somebody else might take my place

Make that money, fake that bunny, ache my tummy
On the fence, all the time
Paint young honey, face so sunny, ain’t that funny
All my friends always lie to me
I know they’re thinking…

You’re too mean, I don’t like you, fuck you anyway
You make me wanna scream at the top of my lungs
It hurts but I won’t fight you
You suck anyway
You make me wanna die, right when I…

When I wake up I’m afraid, somebody else might take my place (x3)
When I wake up I’m afraid, somebody else might end up being me

Keep on dreaming, don’t stop giving, fight those demons
Sell your soul, not your whole self
If they see you when you’re sleeping, make them leave it
And I can’t even see if it’s all there anymore so…

You’re too mean, I don’t like you, fuck you anyway
You make me wanna scream at the top of my lungs
It hurts but I won’t fight you
You suck anyway
You make me wanna die, right when I…

When I wake up I’m afraid, somebody else might take my place (x3)
When I wake up I’m afraid, somebody else might end up being me

Being me and only me
Feeling scared to breathe
If you leave me then I’ll be afraid of everything
That makes me anxious, gives me patience, calms me down
Lets me face this, let me sleep, and when I wake up
Let me breathe

When I wake up I’m afraid, somebody else might take my place (x3)
When I wake up I’m afraid, somebody else might end up being me

    For me, this song is about being a victim of bullying by your own friends or even your crush. I've been there, and it's horrible so I can relate to this song alot. Everyday, I used to cut myself, getting anxiety attacks and panic just because of school, facing these 'demons'. They all told me to kill myself, that I was fat and I was a ' stupid, reckless p*ssy that could go cut her veins off ' basically. My friends were there for me, but I hated them when they Went on me like that. But I was used to it, so I didn't really care to put them off that attitude. I could care less. Anyway, I Think this song is about anxiety attacks, bullying or something Close to that.
