Lyrics

I've been looking in the mirror for so long
That I've come to believe my soul's on the other side
All the little pieces falling shatter
Shards of me too sharp to put back together
Too small to matter
But big enough to cut me into so many little pieces
If I try to touch her and I bleed
I bleed
And I breathe
I breathe no more

Take a breath and I try to draw from my spirit's well
Yet again you refuse to drink like a stubborn child
Lie to me
Convince me that I've been sick forever
And all of this will make sense when I get better

But I know the difference
Between myself and my reflection
I just can't help but to wonder
Which of us do you love?

So I bleed
I bleed
And I breathe
I breathe no -
Bleed
I bleed
And I breathe
I breathe
I breathe
I breathe no more
