On Dangerous Grounds


I'm better off with a normie

Getting involved with another addict

__could get really awkward

____to see her in the rooms after a breakup

Not that we you and I were ever together

__to consider us "broken up"

But as close to "broken up" as I could be with you

"So long"


"Don't let the door hit your ass on the way out"

Those are the words I'd like to be able to say

But you are coming back to the rooms

To humiliate me


I can't say

But I dread it

I'm not so crazy that I would kill you

__just to avoid you

But you are so crazy

That you would kill me

'Cause that just sounds like you

When my fear gets so great

All I can do is sit with my feelings

Like I was told to

Well, I don't wanna be told to

I want to run

I want to flee

I want to escape every possible chance

__of you coming around me

You have every right to feel

__like you have to protect yourself from me

What I did was uncalled for

And very pathetic

It was pathetic of me to pursue you

At this point in your life

And all I can say in my defense

__is that I didn't know any better

____at the time of me trying

______to holler at you

I've never 13th. stepped any one before

And I didn't know that's what I was doing

It was pointed out to me by a friend


____and I still

______was in denial about it

I even lost that friend too

As well as another

You in my life

Have ben nothing but bad news

I long to get rid of you

But I have to learn to get over myself

And live with the fact

__that you will always be around

And that frightens me to death

'Cause I still think you're going to kill me

And I don't want to die

In this point in my career

Which is selfish of me

But it sucks when some one wants you to die
