It Ain't Right


Having had nothing to do

But have no one to screw

Stretches pain across me

And drenches me in heart ache

Why it has to hurt like this

__I don't know

I can't understand it, at all

It's not something I can comprehend

It's just a waste

__to go on living this way

But what can I do?

All these bitches bein' taken

__right in front of my face

____and fucked behind closed doors

______ruins my already damaged soul

Earning respect from thee enemies

__is legally impossible

I have to suffer being beaten to the punch bowl

__by all of them

____and am forced to let them live

______and get away with it

And that just doesn't sit well, in my stomach

There is nobody in sight

__who can fit in my life

So I sigh

__and I die

Do ev'rything

__but kill

____or get high

And is it right?

Is this, at all, right?

Can I live a life like this?

Is this even living, at all?

Why do I bother to live thru the results?

Love never lasts to see me thru

__even when I do find somebody

I'm only asking for nothing

By even getting with anybody

But thee alternative is always "this"

This clutter of solitude

Dripping from the ceiling

And fogging up the glass

Breaking my heart

And cracking mirrors

Where ever I turn

Madness just follows

Nobody after me, romantic'ly

No matter how sick and tired I get

__of being sick and tired

A woman's decision can never be mine

And that just kills me inside

While every one around me

__just lies to me

____and tells me "she's out there"

Well, "out there" is not good enough

I need her to be "right here"

And while my head spins around

__in fear

____and my eyes lack the freedom

______of tears

________the stupid world spins around

__________with the whole world having sex but me
