What's Wrong With "Love"?


The supposed "lofty days"

That bring upon, the pain

I'll wither, in the waking day

Where I am forced to see

That I don't know

__the women I wanna get to know

So my love for them

__I cannot validate

There is no hope for my brain

I'll just obsess over some dame

Until I find something about them

__that can make me stop loving them

When the doubt of love

Becomes thee empty thoughts

I will pick up my gun

And then pick up the 'phone

__with my other hand

And chance will decide

__what happens to me

In these dark days that obtain my today

The night falling doesn't make it any easier

To see

See what's happening to me

I only know my "despair"

Is like a four letter word

In a nursery rhyme

It doesn't belong

But who ever's in charge of me having it

__doesn't care

I just wanna wash

__my own stupidity

____out of my hair

But God has the shampoo

And plain old "water"

__will not do

So changing how my heart behaves

__is impossible to achieve

But thee ignorance is too blissful

__to give up the bliss

Which means I depend on being stupid

To get me high on love

But is that a bad thing?
