Is The Future Just Full Of Lies?


But I'll never mean to you

__what you mean to me

So just forget it


____I'll get over you

You're like the long distance lady friend

__that I never asked for

____on thee internet

And you're just gonna go to my head

So I leave you like this

And forgive you for your crap

But understand that I am not coming back

I'll be around

__spewing words of remorse

____and grief

On sites that you'd never care to read

Until I fumble on a new found character

__that'll make me forget

____what you and me never had

And I'll crack up and ruin another good thing

As you sing songs to Jesus and stuff

And I'll laugh harder

__knowing you weren't what I wanted either

And when I get white knuckles

__suffering and shit

I may just through my final fit

And just learn to never give a fuck

About have any one

Or not having any one

Or how ever the Hell you say it

Then maybe I could stop falling on the floor

And bitches and hos

And even family members and friends

Could stop lying to me

__and tell me how it really is

If I am "garbage"

If I am "trash"

And why I am ev'ry ones' good laugh

This pathetic world around me

Just spews out attractions for me

And I keep falling in love

Because I can't differentiate

__between "love" and "lust"

I used to be worthy of love

I don't know why that's not the case anymore

How did I become a worser catch

__just by getting clean?

Did I turn into a monster?

Why am I only making lady friends

__and not making love anymore?

And where did all my God damned friends go?!

I can't stress this enough

Though I try to ev'ryday

Have I become a broken record?

Is rewording everything

__over and over

____not even art?

And why is this fucking world ending?


You didn't do this

God did
