Take a Xanax when I start to relapse
Which seems to happen all the time,
after a few days of feeling fine

I'm fucking losing my shit,
guess I'm not over it
Can't stay at work, can't stop the hurt,
feels like the walls are closing in
These thoughts that race
are things I can't escape
I try so hard, but don't get too far
Is it too much to ask to start again?

I was discarded, my heart left hardened
And it gets harder every time
someone decides they want to leave it behind

I was in the lost and found
when you came and pulled me out
and took me home
Now we're not alone
But this can only end in tears
You'll pull away and leave me here
Now I know not to get too close


from The Spoils of War, released April 26, 2019
