Who's Gambling?

I roll the dice
I've lost all twice
I've gained some back
but still a wreck

Some broken homes
some broken hearts
I'm almost empty
from all those starts

I scream for change
all think I'm strange
not just a few
now it's me too

I saw the signs
they say I'm mad
I lived the rhymes
they live so sad

They judge and laugh
but won't take time
cause looking deeper
confirms they're dying

But I won't lie
nor will I cry
All I know is whoever came up with this
doesn't roll the dice
doesn't need to think twice
doesn't need to lie
yes, will make you cry
cause I won't die
but you still lie
and you still try

To convince me of your truth
& steal my youth
you think you know it
you think you're God

I wish you well
I wish I'd care
so go to hell
ooops, sorry,
you are already there.
