A Tragedy In The Making


I'll plant a thought in the garden

I'll wreck the dreams of many

I'll injure the tortured


____and lowly

You couldn't be my one and only

Now the world has to pay

For not paring you with meh

A lost soul

__I have become

So dumb

__and dole


__and old

Told what to do too much

Well, it's time I stopped giving a fuck

I will tackle the dangers

__that are at hand

And destroy this so-called "man"

__that I am

Because I really am not

The bells won't ring

I'll tie no knot

And just fly off

And not give a fuck

Death to the world!

And ev'ry one!

In a world full of bullshit

My life has become

Don't look at me

It's true I am "no one"

You couldn't tell me any different

That the well's dried up

__due to there not being

____a single bitch on this planet

______on her way to me

I dread the day

That I die this way

But a chance to change

Is too hard today

I send a spiral shock

__to thee inner gatherings

No people

__and no Earth

____can ever deploy me


They can't even employ me

The destruction of my life

__has already begun

Crushed under a rock, I am

I can't get out from underneath

So I live under this rock

__with it crushing me

I can't even laugh

Because it's not even funny

So can't join the world

As they all laugh at me

I just want them dead

Ev'ry one of them

I can feel my heart throwing a fit

Because I can't seem to kill these people

When they all should be dying

__for disrespecting me

____and kicking me out of connection

______with them

They function fine without me

While I malfunction without them

Well, if there was anything right

With all of what's so wrong

The clock wouldn't go "ding-dong"

Without some one to love

And I wouldn't be here, rotting

With pieces of sanity

__falling out of my head

Me not being able to find

__a woman in her right mind

____is dragging my brain on the floor

I beg the world to stop spinning

Just for time to freeze

So I'd have more time to live

But I'd be alone

If time stopped now
