Loss drips from my fingertips—breathe out
Crimson streaks my cheeks—breathe in
And bruises bloom under my soul—breathe out
I have hands to catch hold—breathe in
A wicked tongue tied to my mind—breathe out
And reason to move one more step—breathe in
No name written on my heart—breathe out
No fate strings tying me down—breathe in
No one to blame or balance—breathe out
Lives fade for days—breathe in
Words bounce around—breathe out
Head’s all in a daze—breathe in
I’m not yet in the ground—breathe out
