I was scared to death barely slept take a breath prepare to step from where I wept to shed my tears till no nightmares were left
Eyedea would frequently undergo periods of mania, keeping him up for days at a time. With this line, he is explaining this psychosis he experiences and how he was scared to death that he would think himself crazy. He takes a breath, however, and attempts to allow himself to move on from being stuck thinking and writing until there was nothing left.
