Everything is so soft
You can't hear anything
Everything is a part of you
Everything is ignoring you
Like your friends

Everything is leaving you
Even though you're chasing it down
Even though you want to talk
They're ignoring you like you're not there

Everyone doesn't want to say anything to you
And this is the part where you cry
You say, I don't want to be here anymore
This is not my life to be in
These are not my friends to be with
