Stephen kind of wrote this song earlier in the project. He honestly doesn't completely remember what was going on but figures it was probably written over a girl. Haha. As he was writing it, he just played the opening riff over and over again until the rest just came together.


Why did you bring me here?
Break me out just to make me disappear, disappear
Pain overwhelming, I try to run away, run away
But words can't be unspoken
Unafraid, unashamed
You broke me down to nothing

I'm losing everything
And I cannot breathe

This is all that I feared
Your words are swirling
They're making things appear, so unclear
I can't believe it's hopeless
You were just a breath away
And now you're lost to focus
Abandoned here, the light it fades
And I can't escape this

I can't see
I can't feel you
You're bringing me
You're breaking me down

And I never meant to hurt you
But I'm lost and I need space to find my way out
And I'm sorry but I cannot stay
This isn't what I needed
