The Picture That Can't Be Painted

-

Too unreal to believe

In a happy ending for me

I'm too wrapped up in my own damned world

To find myself with another girl

"Love won't need me"

__so to say

So I am going to stay this way

I'll fluff my own pillows

__where I lay my head

____and die for the night

And if I have a horrible dream

I'll wake up and be alive

Get another day as being me again

But it'll still be the same

I'll never know what is wrong with my ass

__this way

____but, oh well

I couldn't possibly fix myself

No matter how hard I work on myself

It drains me to try

I can't seem to fly out of my mind

But as I rest here

__what's there to do?

I could pinpoint what makes me laugh

But where will the laughter go?
