4 More Months Of This Shit?


Disappearing into the shadows of loss

Dragging myself thru the mud

And staying unfound


I wouldn't say "I was God's mistake"

But I wouldn't say "I was God's gift," either

I could identify with The Muppet, "Beaker"

But not with "thee average Joe"

But I can't let that stop me from living life

On my worse days, I don't do much

Laughter doesn't flow much, these days

A suffering world around me

And I'm running out of things I could buy

That can make me feel better

Everything on my list right now

Is just replacing broken stuff

With the same exact items

'Cause I just hate change

I can't even laugh at my reflection

__like I used to

'Cause losing my teeth is not funny

I don't even know what's wrong with my identity

Why I'm still not accepted into society

And all thee other freaks seem to be

At least they seem to be to me

When you get clean

__you have nowhere to run to

____when the feelings come

And that's where I'm at right now

Stuck feeling them

Stuck having to

Stuck in a pandemic

Forced into my doom

Getting out of myself don't even help even

'Cause it's happening to ev'rybody too

So no matter what

__I'll always see the problem

'Cause ev'ry one else has the same problem

"A horrible lock-down life

Where we can't even get some exercise

And can only keep getting fat"

The pointless drama is not correctable

All the shame makes me unlovable

But I'm not gonna let that stop me

From putting one foot in front of thee other

Soon the world will be vaccinated

And normality can come back

But the waiting until April

Just feels like too much to have to cope with

I'm even bored of throwing a fit

I just can't stand this shit
