    Blank Palette

    I'm a blank palette, there's nothing to me
    I'm an empty slate; there's nothing to erase
    How can I give up on something that was never even there?
    How can I even try when I get told I'm just a disgrace?
    I'm that emptiness you feel in the pit of your stomach
    The hollowed out shell that once upon a time felt love
    How can I pull myself up when I'm drowning beneath it all?
    I wish I could feel that feeling that I've always been dreaming of
    Dreaming of the I love you's and the I’ll stay forever’s
    Wanting so bad to feel any semblance of normality
    I woke up long ago and realized that rainbows and butterflies don't exist
    I saw the world around me and saw that this was my reality

    I remember when I wished upon those stars
    When I thought that it actually meant something, anything at all
    I remember being silly and throwing pennies into the well?
    I think of those times when I'm backed into a wall
    I think of how foolish, how naive I was
    I think how childish and stupid it was to think that dreams come true
    How can anything ever be true when I'm filled with all this hate?
    Why can't anyone see behind my smiles and see me in a different view?

    I'm a painted picture without any color in sight
    I'm that gloomy, rainy day with no rainbow at the end
    How can I give up on something that was never even there?
    I'm the opposite of what you wanted and I can no longer pretend
    I'm that desperation that hits you when you are feeling scared and alone
    The burning sensation you get when you know that you aren't okay
    How can I pull myself up when I'm drowning beneath it all?
    How can I make you understand, what more do I need to say?

    Do I need to etch it in my skin; do I need to bleed to make you see?
    Do I need to run outside and scream to the empty sky?
    Do I need to shed a thousand tears and put them in a jar?
    Do I need to throw that jar to make you see me cry?
    Do I need to scream "I'm dying" to make you understand?
    Do I need to write a long ass note just for you to ignore?
    Do I need to rip that note up, and glue it back together
    Just to show you that I hurt, please tell me how much more?

    I remember when I wished upon those stars
    When I thought that it actually meant something, anything at all
    I remember being silly and throwing pennies into the well?
    I think of these times when I'm backed into a wall
    I think of how foolish, how naive I was
    I think of how childish and stupid it was to think that dreams come true
    How can anything ever be true when I'm filled with all this hate?
    Why can't anyone see behind my smiles and see me in a different view?
