While My Thoughts Are Being Collected

-

Sworn to destroy me

My enemies are

Then, one day, I will die

-

Riled up, inside

Going nowhere

And someday, I will snap

-

Trying to succeed in life

But how can I?

Nobody wants me to live

-

All my dreams

Ripped out of my heart

Disappear, before me

-

I drift downstream

Get carried away

And lose myself, within myself

-

Not knowing where

Or how to be myself

Who ever that may be

-

The sounds of freedom

Cannot be heard by me

As I am told to "leave"

-

It's an awful feeling

And I have to feel it

Because I'm the one who's me

-

I don't get to let go of life

Because life's got ahold of me

I have to go thru the storm

-

Nothings' gonna be O.K.

It'll always be this way

I'll suffer forevermore

-

Unable to rely

On any thought of mine

I'll just rush thru the world and die

-

Perspectively lost

With nothing going on

I fall to myself

-

Nothing will pick me up

I'll continue to drop

And stay fucked up

-

The massive doubt

That weighs heavily

Does not get tossed out

-

Within a world

That don't fuck around

I see it's reality shown

-

Complain with me

And you'll see what I mean

When I say "life is a bad thing"
