Thee Only Choice I Have

-

Thee only thing wrong with me

Is my detachable mindset

I identify as a loser

Who just doesn't get it

I don't belong anywhere

I feel kicked out of ev'rywhere

The hooker doesn't suck it

The lover doesn't want it

And thee hours spent lost

Just blows up in my face

What a waste

I shouldn't care

So I don't

But like an unwilling ghost

I don't even float

I just drown in my stillness

And haunt where I stand

People look at me

Like a dead funny man

Who's dead because he's just not funny anymore

And all of these hookers

And all of these hos

Cannot make me humorous once more

So why wait for the laughter?

It's not gonna come

But I'm not gonna be sorry

For what I'm gonna do with my gun

So don't give me a chance to apologize

Just give me the power

To take my own life

The world has already said goodbye

I can't keep up with the world

I know I'm too far behind

I knew it since high school

That I was a fool

For not being cool

Why should I dare try and rule?

Even the peasants are better than me

At ev'rything I do

I can't win the races

That I have chosen to run

So I beat myself up

Because I give up

I don't wanna be last at ev'rything

But I have no choice

My brain will splatter now

Goodbye is my only choice
