Pessimism 101


In the shallow waters, I dream

In the light of day, I panic

I don't know what is wrong with my reasoning

But, who knew?

When the tornado debris has scattered

All the words are a mess in my brain

I know my thinker is a waste of creation

Look at how bad I am at what I do best

I don't just rummage in the trash

__for my past

I look at my reflection

__every 4 to 5 days

____for an hour at a time

But only see my enemy

__when I look myself in thee eye

I'm not waiting for any one

I know she's not coming

I will sit here and rest

And complain my life away

Knowing I am still nothing to any one

Doesn't make life any easier

I could fuss around for hours

But what would that do?

Just make matters worse

How I'll never have a clue

Think I'll snort this glue

So that I don't breathe

But then I'll just die

Oh, I don't want any of death

I already don't have a life

But I don't wanna die

I just think that thinking

__has become impossible

'Cause look where it gets me

Self absorbed in myself

My life being all about me

Puts noting but food on my plate

__at thee end of the day

But who's gonna watch

__and make sure I eat ev'rything?

Not a damned soul

Not anybody

It's just another day in Hell

And the wheels on cars

__laugh, as they drive past me


I'm supposed to eat breakfast

__since I don't eat lunch

But look how fat i'm gettin'

Though it's ironic

__all thee other fat guys

____are not single

And I'm so alone

__and don't even mingle

I can't seem to step out of my own way

So I'll stay horny

__until I'm in my grave

Nothing will change me

And tomorrow will be the same
