about

I wrote this song as a response to my ongoing experience with mental illness. It's a very personal piece, I'm sort of baring my soul in this song. The image for it, while a little disturbing, helps to explain what I have tried to, but perhaps can't say. I hope you enjoy this little piece of me.

LYRICS by Feather

I gotta be brave
Can't think too fast
My head is broken
I'll breathe at last
Don't say the words
They whisper here
Pull a smile
That stretches to your ear
And you say
That you feel fine
Know thats your body
But not your mind

I can't tell if it's me or if it's them

I gotta stay small
Find a place
To hide it all
Where it won't show on my face
You're lookin' blue
I see the cracks

Quiver shiver
I'm slipping
Can't hold it all
My mask is dripping
Down my cheeks
My flawed facade
Grinning teeth
Drop the guard
Take me down
Let it fly
Or hit the ground
I'm black and white
No in between
Been this way
Since I was fifteen

Sweet serenity
Complete vulnerability

You've seen my scars
I thought you'd be far
By now

But here you are

Quiver shiver
I'm slipping
Can't hold it all
My mask is dripping
Down my cheeks
My flawed facade
Grinning teeth
Drop the guard
Take me down
Let it fly
Or hit the ground
I'm black and white
No in between
Been this way
Since I was fifteen
