To Explain Why We're Over

-

"Some kind of thing

Eating inside of me"

I love you lots

You "love me not"

But as each night takes over the present

I can rest myself not knowing thee answers

To the dilemmas that trap me in bondage

Unwilling to find an escaping method

Because it's too hard

Locked up in a dungeon of pain

The dreariness takes over the day

And the anguish swallows me in the night

Where I feel like I have died

And don't even know why

The peddles I walk on

Lead me to a world where nothing's going on

Like a ping-pong

I just go off

And a spark of lies splatter like dust

To the point where I lose the trust

Of ev'ry one

Wealthy

Or poor

Big

Fat

Or tall

With all bridges burned to rubble

Dependent on all my pills

Unworthy, I have become

Defiant

And lost

"Calm, cool, and collective"?

My ass!

I'll be perfect in my next life

In this life I cannot progress

Can't even get things off my chest

How do you, when you don't kick it with anybody?

Out of all the bullshit in this world

The biggest bullshit is in my head

Spinning around until I'm dead

Walking around a funny world

Knowing no way to stomach being alone

So I shatter in my own fears

No longer wanting to be here

I fall from the likes of myself

Nothing is changing? oh well!

I could bring my own self to tears

Lose every one of my peers

Eat Cheetos

And wipe my own nose

Land in my own funniness

And watch all the birdies get murdered in their nests

As, like a dog, I am forced to fetch

A pail of water for the rich

You mean noting to me

So you can go

If I explained myself any further

It would have nothing to do with you any longer

So here's your pants

And there's the door

Don't even call me anymore

You stupid whore

You mean nothing

Even if you mean well

It's over between us

Now "go to Hell"
