Is it in my house?
Is it in my head?
Who knows, it’s what I hear;
It’s all the same -
(The same to me)
Sit back, relax, you’ll crack
But don’t worry;
It’s only all you fear,
Don’t make a sound,
Don’t even breathe.

Fast heart,
Hot head,
You hunger for air,
Begging “please don’t leave!”
Even though you’re not there,
I’m all alone
And my brain is going to die.
Panic attack!
Here, take a pill,
If it doesn’t stop now
Then it shortly will,
Don’t think at all,
Just listen…
And feel my mind implode.

Did I lock the door?
Did I hide the key?
A rising feeling dawns
Behind my eyes,
Beneath my ears.
Good luck!
My limbs and jaw conform
To my heart;
Trembling in fear.

Air -
Is the only thing that’s keeping me alive,
Body preventing letting air inside,
All I wanna do is live my life with ease,
put my head down
And let me REST IN PEACE.
