Escape The Fate - Breaking Me Down Lyrics




You used to be so fearless
You used to be so strong
What ever happened to the one that could do no wrong?
How did you get so careless?
How did you get so numb?
Are you the only lie
You're running from

I wish that I could hate you
I wish that I could start by cutting you out
Cause when I look in your eyes
I know I'm watching you drown
I wish that I could save you
I wish that I could start by cutting you out
Cause when I look in your eyes
I know deep inside that holding you up
Holding you up is breaking me down

You don't gotta be perfect
You're not too far gone
But if you can't help yourself
Then you won't move on
The world's not out of focus
It's just what you've become
Don't you see you're the lie
You're running from

I wish that I could hate you
I wish that I could start by cutting you out
Cause when I look in your eyes
I know I'm watching you drown
I wish that I could save you
I wish that I could start by cutting you out
Cause when I look in your eyes
I know deep inside that holding you up
Holding you up is breaking me down

I wish that I could hate you
I wish that I could start by cutting you out
Cause when I look in your eyes
I know I'm watching you drown
I wish that I could save you
I wish that I could start by cutting you out
Cause when I look in your eyes
I know deep inside that holding you up
Holding you up is breaking me down

Escape The Fate Breaking Me Down Comments
  1. Aly Moon

    I dedicate this to my old self, the very self that drank bottles of wine to numb my problems and making the war inside my head against depression worse at that time. I haven't drank any alcohol since 2017 worst year ever

  2. Robot Alien

    Does Escape the Fate have as many fans with Autism as fans with other mental health issues?

  3. Accalia Selene

    This song reminds me of how much I was suffering in 2017 and how I would turn to drinking bottles of wine to numb my pain inside and how I almost became a full blown alcoholic.... Love this song its relatable.

  14. majored

    most of my family has had severe problems with substance abuse. had my first drink when i was 21 not before. for the next couple years i tried various kinds of alcohol never letting myself have more than a shot worth. eventually i realized that i was liking it too much and havent touched a drop in 4 years. when i was 16-17 i had to have knee surgery and they gave me hydrocodone, that stuff messed me up so bad i have a 6 week period where i have very little memory of what was going on.

  28. Mortis Thorne

    I knew there was a reason I never came back to this video.
    My grandmother was an alcoholic, very severely so. She was terrible when drunk, acted like she could do no wrong, and was even physically abusive if the fights between me or my grandpa and her got bad enough. She drank every. single. day. Beer was like a life-line to her, despite the fact that she vomited every day because of it. But I loved her. She wasn't an abusive person by nature. She was the type of woman who cared for every single person who breathed in her general direction, she was the neighborhood's grandma and even my friends adored her. She was the type of person who gave off witchy-vibes now that i think about it. She was a very spiritual and superstitious woman, nothing scared her, she held spiders the size of her entire hand and commanded stray or loose dogs with no fear. She took care of all of the stray cats and even fed squirrels daily in her back yard. She was sassy as all hell and cursed like a sailor. Had beautiful blonde-ginger hair, bright blue eyes, and freckles from head to toe. She passed away several years ago to a tumor in her throat. I don't even remember the exact date, which is probably due to my unhealthy coping mechanism that consists of completely forgetting she ever died and accepting that she's only a part of my dreams now.

  50. meyerangela403

    This reminds me of my mom

  51. Forget your Vanity

    This songs reminds me of back when I was in my dark place in life, grand father passed my gf and I broke up and our child was living with grandparents and my gf got herself in a bad living situation I got really bad into daily drinking doing drugs on a daily usually mixing substances. I had myself in a hole and was dragging others down with me. I had to help myself out. Now days the girl who broke up with me were engaged im clean I'm working making a decent pay cheque and I come home to my fiance and son everyday. Things are going good and people who are struggling trust me if you put in work things get better it won't take a day it probably won't take a month but if you want what you love bad enough you can also turn things around.
