A Heart That Can't Go Back?


Maybe it's just the way I feel

How impossible to unfeel this way


__what a mess

My heart was to blame

All along

Now I'll never be cured

Hearts are even

More uncontrolable

Than the mind

I'll be falling flat on my face

__for forever

Letting my inocent brain

Take the blame

And the governemt is getting away

__with this?


What a fucked up system

I can't believe what I'm feeling

Am I just tripping?

Or are they really paying me

For the way I feel instead?

No wonder I can never naturally

Go to bed

I'm still poppin' Ambien

Just to say "fuck it"

I'm still blowin' up inside

__until I take it

How many nights am I gonna waste?

Am I sure it's not my brain?

If only hearts can change

And go backwards

Instead of what mine has

Become of now-a-days
