Just Another Bad Dream


And in a world where I have died

I left behind my life and love

__and carried on

I belong in the death that has come for me

And has swallowed my soul

And now the world is lost

And all hope is gone

__and all that stuff

It so sucks

The carpet ate my brains

When I shot my head off

I was not here to hurt any one

But I have

And it was uncalled for

I had no excuse

Couldn't make things right

So I took my life

I breathe thee air that is most likely

An uncommon demand

To patch the flowers

__that poisoned my luck

The world outside me

__never gave a fuck

And so from this dream of suicide

__I now wake up


You didn't really think I was gonna kill myself

__did you?
