Inevitably Aging

-

Been told to "relax"

But how can I?

Too much shit

__clouding my mind

All the terror

__flooding my brain

Until droplets of my insanities

__fill the bucket up

____more and more

I tend not to settle the score

I know I'm boring

A helpless addict

And a fiend in every way possible

I just want what I want

And I want it right away

Is that too much to ask?

I wallow in my death

40 now

And too old to fuck around

This is my real mid-life

Is it a crisis?

I don't know

I just want a ho

__to suck and blow

But I know I won't get that

I'm not young enough to get away

__with not being successful

Singlehood is the price I pay

__for still never changing

____and remaining the same

Going nowhere everyday

"It isn't fair," I say

But I know in my heart

__if I have one

____that it is

"How can this be?"

Well, ask thee elephant

__who grew wings

____and flew away

Ask the pile of shredded white cheddar

And they will both tell you

"You've ran out of time

Get ready to die"

"But I don't wanna die"

Says the child inside

"Too bad"

"All the women in the world

__are running far

____far away from me

How can I be happy?"

"Dude

We just told you you're going to die

And you wanna be happy?"

My warped mind doesn't seem to mind

Growing old sucks

But I also wanna be sucked

Is that so bad?

A desire for love is all I have

All there is in my heart to hold onto

If I let that go

__I'll have no ambition

But I guess I don't have a choice now
