Stuck At The Bottom

-

Quite frantic, lost in space and time

Nobody here wants to be mine

But I don't mind

Can you blame 'em?

The tossed-in-thee-air pizza pie

Crumples down the street

As the street cleaner stops, to eat the meat

It's quite alright

To live unloved and then die

Men do it all the time

The popcorn machine talks to me

It really does

It doesn't say "hello," or "hi"

But I know the popcorn is mine

Don't ask me how I know

I just do

When I look at the table

For scraps of food

And find nothing to eat

I curse the break room

And starve for 3 hours

Then I go home, and it's the same shit ev'ryday

Boredom will not release it's grasp on me

My brain thinkles on demand

And I can't come out and play

Thee only thing wrong with this bottom

Is that there is no "up"

Nowhere to climb

I am just stuck

Stuck here like this

A normal life, is nowhere to be found

Normality can't be reached

But what's good about normality anyways?

Relationships are hard work

My permanent un employability traps me

My singlehood won't let go of me

But life is grand

If I can convince myself that

And I have

So this is how life is going to be

My own world

Just for me

And nobody else

And if somebody tries to come in it

I'm gonna kick them out

No questions asked

I'll watch the skies water on my head

Until I drop dead

I'll smile alone

With an insane smirk on my face

As I laugh to myself

"What a horrible world"

And if no one laughs with me

So what?

You had thee opportunity to know me

You just chose not to know any one else

Other than who you already know

So smell my belch

And get the fuck outta my face

You're all just a waste of space

So stop wasting my time

When you won't be mine

Stop saying "hi"

If you don't really want me around

Involved inside your life

I'll never get out of this bottom alive

Depending on false friendships

So let go of the rope

Your presence is a joke
