Getting Away From You


I Won't recovery from your madness

You've drove me too crazy

__to heal the part of me

____that cracked up with you

I won't be bothered with your shit

I've grown used to

__the crap that you gave me

____that I'm far too used to it

I won't pay you no mind

I have no pieces of my mind

__that I can give to you

____for you to merely have pieces of only mine

Take time to tell me "goodbye"

I will be gone when your goodbyes are done

__and I won't be back, at all

____to tell you another "hello"

As the world falls to pieces

I will be gone from you

__and won't be there

____to hold you still as you torment me

When the lights go off in my mind

My heart will be left in the dark

__with no light inside

____inside of me in the dark

The rush of pain

That I strive to rid myself of

__is just so much to handle right now

____even as alone as God can let me be

I won't realize the truth

Not when what is not real

__is so right up in my face

____that it's all that's in the forefront

When the laughter stops

And all the little monsters

__that I hear in the background

____die in the light of exposure

You'll always know what it sounded like

For me to laugh

__and be cracked up

____and knocked off onto my ass

The floor will shake

And when all is dead

__the whole world will rest

____an no one will be left alive

What, then, will be left of the world?

Nobody alive to read all of what's written

__nor see any pictures taken

____nor paintings painted

Not even the sculptures will serve a purpose

And all of our creations

__will be all left behind

____as we all enter our afterlives

Will we see them again?

Will they be right where we left them?

__or discarded away

____by a destruction of thee Earth?

Whatever the case

I don't love you

__and you don't love me

____so won't unite after death, either
