Madness's Design

-

The dead walks around in my head

Tryin' to find my brain

__so they can infect it

But it's been missing for decades

So little do they know

__"it's not there"

When I came to, this morning

I knew I had to get out of bed

And when I finally did

__my dream faded away

____out of my focus

The day began to stress me out

And with all the dead in my head

I knew nothing but pain

All thru the day

__all I could feel, was thee insanity

I don't deal with what I feel

I know this, because I find myself

__always on the run

The fun times have dwindled

And when I can no longer figure

__anything out

I am cracked up with laughter

And it doesn't even matter anymore

Being locked up with the ghosts

__does not help me

But when it doesn't make a difference

__what kind of good times

____could I compare my hard times to

______when I have no good times?

When the tears creep out of my eyes

All is lost

__and I can't seem to find

____any break from the ghosts

______who are still lookin' for my mind

I will live this whole crazy life

With nobody else around me

__all of the time

____except for thee other guys

______that I become

________from time to time

I can only think of murder

__when I walk this Earth

But I can't lift a finger

__to try and bring the hostility

____in my heart

______finally out of me

________and into action

Evermore feeding to the pain inside

Making me result to wanting

__to take my own life

But in thee end

The dead knows what's been goin' on

And their voices are thee only words

__I can hear

When I'm all alone

They are my only witnesses

And the big picture of that

__scares me to pieces

Fumbling into shattering the whole picture

__all over again

And until I am dead

The madness of thee unliving

__follows me everywhere I go

And I'll never get away from home

'Cause it's thee only place I know

The last thing I learned

Before my mind just burned

And until it doesn't hurt

I will join the search

And then when I can no longer feel this

I'll just stop giving a shit

And it will finally all end
