As It Seems To Matter


The damage of my heartache

Has rustled me upon the ground

When the prescription to my peace of mind

Had stopped bein' written

My Ambien highs were over

And to thee extent that I am clean and sober

I just don't seem to mind

I can crawl out the shadows of my death now

Knowing I can't pick up

__no matter what

And all of the words in my head

Well, they scramble it's way into my brain

And hatred becomes the "nothing" I am

I was left to die this way

Unaware of what the damage has done to me

And yet, so cold in my heart

I'll be a free-falling idiot

And I'll be done with meaning it

So when I draw back from the drop

I'll land in a pile of ashes

The remains of my past

I know I've been horny

But women don't seem to care

So can't fuck them anywhere

Their beauty only illuminates their disliking

__of me

____and what I could possibly mean to them

But when the world comes to an end

__I'll never see them again

And I'll die wanting to screw them
