The voices around me makes me wanna do something I shouldn’t.

Can you get underneath that, interpret that.

Understand on a subatomic level the danger of those words no one will truly comprehend.

Makes me a dangerous woman where they don’t seem to care.

Wanting to see it all disappear.

Tell me when the feeling is gone.

Enjoy the time in between.

We get right back on.

They talk louder then before.

Scream till it’s drowned out.

Im trying to deal, trying to understand.

It’s been hell hearing the screaming sound when I fall asleep at night.

Choking on words I can’t describe, its gonna be a long night.

But It’s okay little girl it’s going to be alright.
