Lyrics: 

everybody talking so much
well come and say it
get me something nice
everybody just wanna take it
I keep trying to swim but I'm drowning
I can make it
grinding when I'm fallen and down
yeah I can take it
every now and then I hit bottom and I can take you all along
make it to shallow water
bring on the storm
never thought I could be so dumb
I came way too far
I can't wait too long

maybe the second time will do it
but I bet the second it's trouble you won't pursue it
you're struggling through it
if you're not careful you gonna lose it
blaming the boozin, but thats a lifetime full of choosin
or simply refusing
just another thin excuse
to make up for a lifetime of suffering and abuse
to make another reason to be depressed and to use
to take another shot in the dark, but you always lose

when better days are far off
don't put it on me
if harder times do follow
don't put it on me
easy to see the picture
solution vaguely clear
struggle within is tough
but don't dare you put it on me

the feeling that you get
the world that you forget
the beating of the heart thats pounding hard inside your chest
the madness you create
the falsehoods that you hate
the weight of whats been forced upon you piled up on your plate
and to think that I felt bad, had regrets, were even sad
who knew you'd continue to grow with care, the hate within you
the things that you've accomplished
like a lifetime full of lies
are all that I can focus on when looking in your eyes
words are sharp and ugly and devoid of any thought
relationships and family
some things simply can't be bought
so sit alone and wonder
hidden deep and dark alone
the possibilities that could have been
no different than your own
you've come to your decision
one that makes it hard to sleep
hope it's all that you've envisioned
and the world is at your feet
as the calendar displays all the passing of the days
you learn to live a life with pain
because some things will never change

when better days are far off
don't put it on me
if harder times do follow
don't put it on me
easy to see the picture
solution vaguely clear
struggle within is tough
but don't dare you put it on me

middle of the night you're waking up sweating
with this feeling like there's something you're forgetting
you start panicking
it's rapidly spreading
your body's shaking and twitching
your head is pounding and spinning
finally calm down and try to catch your breath
stop yourself from doing something you'll probably regret
tell yourself it doesn't fucking matter yet
you're convinced you're all set
whats the value of an empty threat?
it's the same for the value of an empty mind
think about it
the answer's not too hard to find
it's like your life has been halted to a fine grind
need to find your purpose
you have nothing you can get behind
cause the best and hardest thing in life to keep is people
there's not another thing you'll find where love and hate are equal
what's done is done
try to kick the damage and the needle
you gotta make it to the end before being in the sequel

when better days are far off
don't put it on me
if harder times do follow
don't put it on me
easy to see the picture
solution vaguely clear
struggle within is tough
but don't dare you put it on me

Very well done, lyrically and musically. Especially like the sound of the chorus.
