    i can see you hurting yourself
    see us hurting each other
    feels like there's less and less to care about
    tensing our extremities against the biting cold
    
    i can see when you smile and nod too readily
    that this isn't enough and it might never be.
    you've just got a vague feeling
    that it's all beginning to unravel
    and you have to get away before it becomes
    reality
    too great to overcome
    
    you're always running
    just to escape whatever's hounding you
    trying your best to keep pace
    i drown myself in violence
    white-hot but immobile
    until i'm numbed to it all
    
    neither of us can deal.
    we don't have the words
    and, even if we did,
    we're such private people, aren't we?

    Code:
    i watched you as you lay there
    helpless
    and they roughed you up a little
    
    skin turning blue in the cold
    marks all over your body,
    allergies acting up
    things have never been easy,
    not even when they should've been
    
    i saw you struggling to breathe
    and i still don't know if you actually recovered
    
    i guess that
    everything was wrong from the very beginning
    
    maybe you still remember the feeling
    somewhere deep inside
    
    but even understanding it now might not matter
    i mean, hindsight has never saved us
    not that ignorance or denial are any better ...
    wasted energy all around.
    
    nostalgia;
    everyone looked so happy,
    which makes it all kind of tragic now, really
    all that celebration
    and, now, look:
    
    nobody cares anymore
    except the ones who just don't know any better.

    Code:
    ETHICAL DRUGS
    my habits are different now;
    now, i'm on the other side of the wall.
    things have changed so much, so often
    within such a short time
    that i guess that my feelings are being dulled
    
    last week, i was almost pulled away
    water flowing in a river
    looked so peaceful from the bank ...
    
    and we looked peaceful too
    hanging on for dear life
    everyone wonders if you're okay
    but no-one wants to disturb you.
    
    i don't know how we manage.
    i'm permanently tired now
    and sleep just makes it worse
    keep waking up at the wrong times
    
    soon, i'm going to realise
    that everything is wrong
    and that i still need to worry,
    even though i'm not in control at all.

    i can see them down there.
    to use the cliché, i guess they do look like ants
    but that doesn't quite capture the distance
    they don't care, and they shouldn't.
    the only ones that care about us,
    they just don't know any better, for better or worse
    we're dead even to ourselves
    
    i can feel the wind ...
    people tell you it's exhilarating, getting away from it all
    being close to nature
    maybe reconnecting with a deeper part of yourself
    from before all of this stuff happened
    i know that this isn't what they mean.
    the air up here isn't calming.
    instead, it's a constant battle
    
    it's hard being so afraid all the time
    maybe, at some point, your receptors burn out
    the signals that you need
    can't reach you anymore
