The Present Tense


My present tense is lacking love

The hole in my heart cannot be filled up

Well, stupid people never show up

For my damned life

__like what the fuck?!

I carelessly don't mind, the drama at hand

I know I'll never grow to be the man

That every woman wants to sleep with

Stupid bitches make me sick!

I long to kill them all

__just throw a fit!

'Cause I'm so SICK of the world's shit!

How can I get along with all of y'all?

Even if I was 7 foot tall

__and full blooded white

____I bet I still would not fit in

And would not have the privelages

__that is supposed to come with that

I'd be just thought of as still on crack

Maybe just a generic version

__of a normal human being

But I'm not supposed to give a shit


Fuck you!

__and your God damned life!

There's a reason why God damned you!

While you're out there playin' fallow-the-leader

I've been doin' things my way!

Now get the fuck out of my face

__before I snap your neck!


You wanna play hard-to-get?

How 'bout Im kill everybody you know?!

See how you like bein' alone!

Fuckin' stupid hos!
