Tick

I tell myself I shouldn't care

Why should it matter what you think?

It's seems so hard, but life's not fair

You don't realize I'm at the brink…

My sanity I hold onto

By a single, fragile thread

I shouldn't hate myself

I should be blaming you, instead

Why is it so easy to slip into this place

Where depression engulfs all of me?

My vision is getting hazy

And it's almost impossible to see

I tell myself I shouldn't care

Why do you affect me this way?

I fear that the clock has stopped ticking…

It's too late for another day
