I tried to take three steps outside, but I recoiled in shame.
As my empathy grew, I deteriorated.
I'll never be the same.
I got so lost trying to be a hero, that I forgot to save myself.
But since I'm worthless, I find solace in knowing I could save...
I would give my life to make sure that they stayed.
So forgive me, when I fall into your arms and dismiss my earthly surroundings.
I've marked out lines upon my chest to show the world the absence
Of the part of me that keeps me alive and above.
If you never see me again, just know I gave my heart away
To a million people thinking of stopping theirs.
