Waking Up To Having No Brain


In the morning I woke

Suddenly noticing my brain didn't work

I grabbed it out of my head

__and threw it in the gutter

It's no wonder

__why today

____all day

______I felt so crazy

________and stupid

All I wanna do is think

But I can't even do that now


__in a wander

There is no other way to live

I know I'll just get sick of this shit

But what can I do about it now?

I miss having thoughts

They'll always be missed

I just know it

This sadness

__that I can feel

____creeping into my heart

______can all be blamed

________on my mindless head

I'll feel this sad

__until thee end

And when thee end comes

__I'll still be called "dumb"

Even in the darkness

__of there not being a world anymore

Living this way

__will just continue

With no mind I have nothing to do

I could shoot a gun at my head

But with no mind in my head

__I'll have no brain to blow out

____and would not even be dead

Oh, how can I die now?

I wanna know how

Please,show me the way

__to suicide

'Cause I hate this life
