Floating in Heaven

Need some music, would love to collaborate with an artist who is looking for lyrics that are powerful and unafraid to speak truths.

VERSE
The silence that booms from my thoughts of self-doubt
is louder than the sound of the sun burning out.
Yet, in this confusion where I seek only peace,
I discovered my weakness and found my relief.
I was crazy to think that this beast I could tame.
Desperation inside only grows with the pain.
Like cancer, I’m fighting myself - it’s insane.
My life is a zombie that eats its own brain.

HOOK
“Try to come out of it,” they say,
“it’s just depression.
You used to smile much more, your heart was floatin’ in heaven.”
But eventually demons took over my head and
I had to struggle harder just to not put an end to
my life.

VERSE
You say that words don’t hurt, only sticks and stones.
Well then for what it’s worth, suck my stick and stones.
Cause words do more than hurt, they rape and kill your soul,
just take a good hard look
on every kids tombstone.
Then tell yourself
your words did not inspire
their darkest wish,
to commit suicide.
How can you sleep at night
while you’re a part of it;
these kids were bullied
now sleeping, permanent.

HOOK
“Try to come out of it,” they say,
“it’s just depression.
You used to smile much more, your heart was floatin’ in heaven.”
But eventually demons took over my head and
I had to struggle harder just to not put an end to
my life.

VERSE
I have no place in this world,
there is no name for this.
Another flag to unfurl,
another grave to dig.
A piece of me goes with you
into the dark unknown.
Alone never, always two
is how us soldiers roll.
The only problem now
is that my heart is dying,
just like in every town
we killed, left mothers crying.
So when I press this steel
against my battered head
know that I did kill,
to not be killed instead.

HOOK
“Try to come out of it,” they say,
“it’s just depression.
You used to smile much more, your heart was floatin’ in heaven.”

my life.
