Break You Down

Paper, paper in my lap.
Take a pen and just relax.
Do it for love, for fun; not like this-
Stop this. Stop it, making me sick.

You do this, do this.
To you. Just stop.
Just stop it, to you.
You will get through.

But this pen, it pretends.
All nothing is really real.
All these issues, so few.
Make small grow into huge.

You do this, so stop.
To you, stop it now.
Find a way some how,
find away to allow.
To stop it from breaking you down.

You do this, so stop.
To you, stop it now.
Find away to allow.
To stop it from breaking you down.

This pen, it begins.
And I, make mends.
To not- not to pretend,
for what's evident.

Realize, take fate.
To stop this dead weight.
To top this world,
is your aim.

Stop it, to you.
Stop it now.
To find away to break some how.
To keep it from breaking you down.

Find away to allow.
To stop it, believe it.
It's breaking you down.
Stop it, release it.
It's only breaking you down.
