Unable To Climb My Way Out Of This One


I guess the good times have all just left dear me

So I will crack open an energy drink

And sit here, until I can begin to think

As I organize songs, like an anal retentive

On a rampage, while chain-vaping

Turn around and grab a pen off the table

And pick up the book, with nothing else to do

Stupid shutdown

__what can you do?

Can't have a woman's company, that's for sure

Not when I'm single, and I have nobody

The world looks like a terrible place

__to have to be stuck here

Living and breathing

__the same air as ev'rybody

____oh dear

What's the matter with me?

All I can do is stay clean

The current of my life, though, is gettin' so high

I don't even bother counting how many times I blink

Why would I do that?

What for?

What's the reason for anything these days?

A monkey could drag his tail behind him

But I don't have any one I can kill

Fuckin' life-on-life's-terms sucks ass

But I can't help it

__if the price of love is a high bill to pay

What am I doing here, these days?

Just wastin' away?

I'm still waiting for Season 4 of Stranger Thangs

I'm a slave to entertainment

But I'm not a couch potato, yet

I just wanna get all the words in my head

__down on paper

To see what I've been feeling lately

I was never good at thee 11th. step

Nor the 9th. one, for that matter

Voices, from somewhere, keep laughing, and laughing

But I don't ever know what's so funny

I have misfortunes at the super market

And people just laugh

Makes me wanna kick some ass

But I'm so institutionalized

__I can't even do that right

I can't blame society for wanting me dead

There are so many things I shouldn't have said

But I'll milk the cows, if it makes God happy

Emptiness runs thru my veins

How can life be so insane?

My temper keeps on warping my brain

Feed my thoughts with anger and despair

It's so unfair

But the meat trolley hasn't finished

__making it's way to me

So how can I complain?

I want things to slow down sometimes

But July cannot come soon enough

If only I weren't so useless to every one

Maybe I could be invited to all the fun

And happy moments could happen again

But this rotten world is full of heartless people

How can I be friends with any one?

I'll weep in pain one day

__I just know it

And I won't know what's wrong with me

When I make it big

__and then screw up, and blow it

I'll swallow the pain, like I'm asked to

Then I'll just start chasing wabbits

For no reason

Other than to catch one

And choke it to death

To give myself a good laugh

Not caring how frowned upon that would be

But why should I care

__what others think of me?

I was told not to care about that

Because I do that too much

Yeah, you wanna piss me off?

Just think up a bunch of thoughts about me

That really gets my evil wheels all greased up

__and goin'

I couldn't imagine a world

Where nobody anywhere was thinking

__some shit about me

That would be impossible

I piss everybody off

Even God

__if you could imagine that

Love the bit about the wabbits. Hang in there - the last year's been a circus for our patience. We're all tired, bored - just wanna live again.

Yeah, tell me about it. I'm just afraid the vaccine will not workout. Last night I saw a story about it failing. Go figure, right?
