Arriving To This Point

-

God! how did I get so crazy?

All my friends don't really want me around

And ev'ry woman I fall in love with

__expects too much from me

I have fallen to my seat

Painfully saying goodbye

__to the miracles I see all around me

____that just never happens to me

Well, if I cut my hopes short

__I won't achieve much

"Achievement?"

Something I don't think I can have

What's the point in feeling

If the feelings aren't real?

Kenya must be gone

Haven't seen her in a while

Maybe she's never coming back

Ev'ry other woman?

Well, I don't know what to do with them

I just feel like I'm wasting my time

With ev'ry one

Maybe I'll just meat number 97

But for what?

Just to never have her?

I grow sick of my tomorrows

It's like no one can help me

Nothing helps

Nothing works

And now they wanna tax groceries?

My mind has wasted away

How can I have gone this crazy?

Why is ev'rybody leaving me?

Did I burn all my bridges?

The power and control, I thought I once had

Was it all an illusion?

I've lost lucidity

Clarity is nowhere

Not even closure

__can be anywhere to be found

I am trapped behind the walls

__that surround me

I am so cool

__that I don't know what's wrong with me

There are some things that need to be fixed

But what are they?

Where have all the good girls gone?

Nobody seems to want to love any one

But could that be the problem?

Have I been holding onto a dream

Of something that nobody feels anymore?

That nobody wants anymore?

That has been kicked out of th world?

Maybe people all figured it out

That love is pointless

But I've been too blind

Too busy trying to do the same thing

__over and over

____and expecting different results

______that I'm the last to realize it

Has love's existence in the modern world

Really past expiration?

There's not even anybody around me

That can answer that question
