Take a breath, it’s only oxygen you’re losing after all
Pay no mind to any notion that the walls are closing in
Look around at all the evidence you’re safe inside this room
Remember me, remember every time I held your hand to tell you this

When you feel that too-familiar pulling in your lungs
Just count backwards; it isn’t death you’re running from
When you feel the acid bubbling up inside your lungs
Have no fear; your thread is nowhere near the blade

Now you see just how deceitful all the ghosts inside you are
Let them know you won’t surrender to their woeful cries, their clever bribes
I send my love, send it like countless troops to penetrate the walls
Watch them burn, watch them disintegrate beneath my hands, my steady hands


Please don't let it take you down
Don't let it take you down
Don't let it take you down
