It's starting to feel like the end of the world,
It's starting to feel like suffocation,
And I, through my stream of tears, force out a smile,
And turn my back on the stars.

It feels like the end of the world tonight,
It feels like the end must come soon,
And I don't see the point growing old,
I want to embrace the end.

I'm sick of this razor and sick of the lies,
"Paper cut", "cat scratch", "just the thorns",
Look past the fake smile and straight to the pain,
Read through my memories, could I be saved?

If it's too late, then leave me here to die,
If it's not, then don't let me say goodbye,
I don't want to make you cry,
I promise you all that I'll try.

And although it will hurt, I'll stay strong,
I know it will hurt but I'll fight,
If it's too late, then let me go,
If it's not then I'll fight to stay.

It feels like the end of the world tonight,
It feels like it's all going to fade,
But please, someone, don't let my heart stop,
Take away the paper cuts that I've made.
