lyrics

am I somebody?

all is all sewn outward and not within
cats cradled, elastic, and accordion
made with the intent of tension
there is no purpose without separation
lets use our pain to get us there
‘cause it’s not wisdom if we never learn

I’d not exist had you not seen me there
and I’d make no sound without your ears
I don’t want to be a weight on any mind
no, I don’t want to be a burden on any life

am I somebody?
am I somebody else?
am I somebody else?

I folded myself into a chair as you came to sit
I just wanted to be as small as I can be
but a parasite shrink to scale
it sees on a feast on a petri dish
and all those words we used
you know they grew new meanings
until it got to that place where I couldn’t just say
“come on, would you just let me sleep!”

but you’d not exist had I not seen you there
just a part of a crowd, another pair of random eyes
could've been anybody
could’ve been anybody else
could I be anybody?
could I be anybody else?
it could've been anybody
I should've been somebody

I could of been someone
