Midwest Island (So They Say)

Whenever I try it feels like, the day is burning away Peeling back my skin wanting to give in Wanting to take this road straight back to nowhere again Did you ever know I waited my whole life Will you help my burn these street signs? Waiting for a sunny Summer day Did you ever know I held it all inside It's pointless acting like you could understand I'm doing the best I can to not give in On this midwest island is a shipwreck Where the walls have closed us in Feeling like I can't wait to drive away from here I feel like choking hands (of fear) As they grab my neck (I'm scared) But I'm not prepared to give up everything You're taking my breath from me You're asking too much from me
