Drowning in the air
unknown

5:00 am my alarm clock rings
 1
The sun is not up, the birds do not sing
 2
The leaves silently sway along with the trees
 3
How I wish I could be free...
 4
Free as the leaves that rustle around, or the sky up above where I cannot drown
 5
Drown in the world full of people
 6
who no longer care, the same routine that never fades,
 7
Get up, get dressed, and go through the day
 8
Not bothering to ask "Are you okay?" but I guess my answer would always be the same
 9
I would just smile and laugh and "Yes but thanks"
 10
I wonder what they see or how they feel
 11
Living in a world that isn't real
 12
Do they do the same just pretend to be okay
 13
but alone at home there fading away,
 14
A raging pitch black is all they see
 15
Maybe they are the same as me...
 16
Wake up, get dressed, and pretend to believe
 17
Act okay in the mornings light, but really alone it is always night
 18
How I wish I could say I'm really okay
 19
but that is a story for another day.
