The Heavens Are Destroying Me


I hope the best

For all that I'm thinkin'

I shoot the breeze

But nobody listens

When I speak up, it's like I'm talkin' to myself

I get no acknowledgement

__of even being human

____and needing some company

______like anybody else

But all I get is deserted

And left on a shelf

I fall from my high horse

While all the world is mingling

__I'm dangling off a cliff

____about to lose my grip

______and die

But The Heavens say

__I "haven't suffered enough"

But have I really done so much damage?

What's wrong with this planet?

Thee eternity I seem to be spending in pain

Is enough to keep me insane

So I know I'll never be normal

So I won't be O.K.

I'll just hang off this ledge of a mountain

While export hikers

__walk on my fingers

____forcing me to let go

And there I will go

Down down down the slope

Without any snow

As I only get hurt

__I can only wonder

____"why am I getting hurt?"

All the time

__it's like this

But does Heaven care?

Maybe thee angles are on dope

Well, I refuse to feel this emotion

So I run away from what I feel inside

Never let it show

People would not care how I feel anyhow

So why let them know?

"Why people ask me how I'm doing"

I always wonder that, myself

It's like I don't even know
