The Bottomless Pit Has A Bottom

-

Slapped with the pain

It won't go away

Stomp on my fever

Tither tather away

I gain the smiles that come my way

While losing the game

By way of forfeiture ev'ryday

I refuse to hang my head in shame

And if people can't accept that

They can go fuck off

I know they want me to think

That what I am not doing is a bad thing

But I cannot think like that

That would be worse than smoking crack

The bottomless pit

__that I thought I fell into

____actually has a bottom

And this is it

I stand on the floor, here

With nothing to do

But lock myself in my room

Tied to loves' goodbyes

Love?

Love doesn't exist

Just a bunch of women

__who only pretend to love you

When they are only using your love

__to their advantage

And use it against you too

Before I hit my bottom

I wasn't able to laugh at my misfortune

But now I can

Now I can laugh hysterically

And still know I am a man

A better man

Not having to rely on love

__to feel like one

A better man

With no future of being tied down

__to any one

I'll never have to worry about divorce

If I never ever even marry

And that makes me happy

Joyous

__and free

Free without any care

No care in the world

Pussy's not gonna come to me

And I know that

Women don't really have a heart to give

So I know I won't capture any

Love is only in your mind

I'd rather enjoy my life

Not waste my time on waiting

__for anybody

The more effort I make

The more I am only trying

__to force some one into my life

So just let me be me

And stop lying to me

Square pegs can't it into round holes

And my self image is just that

A square peg

I don't want a square hole

So the woman I want

I cannot fit in the life of

That's just common sense

Acceptance is not failure

Acceptance is humility

Running around trying to change

Is not the kind of insanity

__I want to have

So kiss my ass, planet Earth

You do me no good

__not accepting me as I am

Fuck you

And piss off
