Voice like a campfire
Head like a doll
Cracks buried under porcelain skin

Tattooed and sprawling
Figures make their mark
Still can’t find the spark to begin

And the words on your arms won’t fade
Even when your tired body has turned in for the night

These memories just won’t go away
They replay behind your weary mind

You say it’s all all right
But what will you do
When it’s all caught up with you?

Mistakes start to pile up
Follow you around
Still won’t make a sound when you’re afraid

You said “One of these days
I just won’t show up again”
Forced out every friend you might have made

And you look so much older than you should
An effect from the anxiety you’re never gonna face

You know it won’t do you any good
Just to force a grin and bear it in that unforgiving place
