Learning To Breathe

I can't imagine why
When you want to understand
I open my mouth
And you cover your ears with your hands

Trying so hard to be understanding
Avoiding the conflict when it's staring
In your eyes, hot breath on your face,
But your eyes, they are closed
Because ignorance is fucking bliss

And, God damn it, I'm not yelling
I'm trying to make sense to you
But you refuse to acknowledge that
You don't really want to know what I'm saying

Spreading lies and confusion with your
Rumors and theories, turning people against me
And I don't even know their names
They stare me in the eyes, and my eyes, they are closed
So they can't decipher the secrets I carved into my irises
