Youíre falling asleep  
While I lie here awake  
You dream peacefully  
Unaware of this weight  

But you never see it  
Cause I keep it quiet  
Hiding all my shed tears  
And keeping it silent  

The wall inside my head  
Theyíre padded and white  
You tell me Iím crazy but  
I know thatís not right  

And Iím starting to feel it  
Alone in our bed, and  
Youíre sleeping so soundly  
But Iím alone in my head  

They say this is gaslighting  
Youíre too manipulative  
And I know when youíre lying  
But itís all so stimulative  

You get me all worked up  
And Iím wracking my brain  
I donít see all these problems  
You say I should be shamed  

So youíre sleeping soundly  
While I hold it together  
I ignore all your insults  
But Iím feeling the pressure
