shake

your words will cut me

(just like you)

wrap like twine around me

twist everything i do

(well it's not worth it if i don't scream -)

but pain is just some little thing

(past this skittering breath – )

this stupid helplessness

of fiery steel -

and i push back down this inner weakness

(yeah you know that's all it is)

i talk quietly and then we'll just pretend

it'll be fine

it'll be fine

it'll be fine

it'll be
