Nothing Left of Me {Video}

By gweninterrupted

The main voice and visual on this were RECorded by the video camera itself- all in one take, in the middle of a panic attack i was having locked away inside of a bathroom in my old apartment. Harmonies and visual effects were added later. i thought this might be cool for the dream collab. The lyrics are about fears at bedtime- which for me stem from my PTSD.

Nothing Left of Me {Lyrics}

i sing myself to sleep
knowing they are coming for me
i am getting weak
maybe they will just ignore me

i sing myself to sleep
feeling them creep up behind me
i am getting weak
maybe they will never find me

how am i supposed to close my eyes
when i know the monsters are waiting just outside?
you tell me again and again that they're not there
Which makes it so hard to explain why i'm so scared

but they're coming for me
i'm starting to shake
i'm not sure how much more
of this i can take
and i don't know if i will ever feel safe

i am scared in my sleep
awake in my dreams
my mind is falling apart at the seams
and come morning there'll be
nothing left of me

i sing myself to sleep
hiding underneath the covers
i am getting weak
feeling like i'm being smothered
i sing myself to sleep
terrified of going under
and i am getting weak
i'm getting weak
i'm getting weak

how am i supposed to rest my head
when i know the monsters are gathered 'round my bed?
you tell me to try to pretend that they're not there
but i feel them running their fingers through my hair

because they're coming for me
i'm starting to shake
i'm not sure how much more
of this i can take
and i don't know if i will ever feel safe

i am scared in my sleep
awake in my dreams
my mind is falling apart at the seams
and come morning there'll be
nothing left of me

Love.
<3
