Living Apart From Grace


"You don't have enough clean time

So God took you out of my life"

That's thee only reasonable explanation

__I can think of

____for why things are this fucked up

You can't be mine

So the list goes on

And on

__and on

Who knows how long before I find my true love?

Some say "it don't exist"

That only makes me feel like shit

A "coward" I am

__for not being able to take you for my own


Being as how that's how those people would see it

Well, I'm tired of losing my chance

__just because I won't take a chance

But who am I to try?

I'm noting to any one

How can I not give up?

The Star Spangled loss, that is my love for you

Has trapped me in a corner

Nowhere to turn to

Nowhere to run

I can never be loved by some one

I am a piece of shit



That's right

But I can't do anything about it

Don't pieces of shits deserve love too?

It's not like I'm a douche

I love her, don't I?

But for what reasons, I don't know

I guess I deserve a better catch

Than another crazy ass

And so God is keeping her from my greedy hands

That are desperate for anybody right now

I'm running into a brick wall

And I don't have any other destination

So oh well
