I Need a Break(down)

written by: OurSacredHonor

I take too long to come back around
I can't keep my feet on solid ground
My head is lost up in the clouds
I couldn't find myself in a lost and found
I have a pad and a pen and I'll write a list
But I still forget to put things on it
Like the milk and the medicine
For the allergies I've been living with
But enough about me, how about you?
How've you been? How do you do?
Is everything OK? Did you pull through?
I meant to send a card but I forgot that too
I'm quite sure I'd forget to breathe
If my body didn't do it for me
Take deep breaths, just hold steady
Tell me now, are you ready?

I pour my day to day life into a sieve
To extract the happiness from the life I live
But I spend so much time
Am I taking on too much? Something's going to give

I'll be just fine while juggling scissors
But I get paper cuts trying to use the shredder
Just when I think I'm getting better
Look in the mirror, my eyes are redder
It must be from the lack of sleep
Is insomnia a real disease?
If it is then medicate me please
I need a refill on my prescription of TV
It's who I wish I was, who I want to be
Is it inspiration or am I brainwashed by fantasy?
Reality TV is more in touch with reality than me
I'd change the channel, but the only repeat on is the life I lead

I pour my day to day life into a sieve
To extract the happiness from the life I live
But I spend so much time
Am I taking on too much? Something's going to give

Give in or give up
Or just give it all away
Something's going to give
Something's going to break
Give in or give up
Or just give it all away
I'll break down
Just not today
