How Much "Oh Well"s Am I Supposed To Say?


My broken brain had gone thru the fire

__of withdrawal

____of panic and surprise

I woke up in rage

"How could she leave me?!"

"What was her problem?!"

She's gone

She's not coming back

The world may as well self destruct

Because I am not alive anymore

The filth

__and rage

____that has become of me

______just won't go away

I cannot

__not be me

I am who I am

Poor white trash


And schizophrenic

__among other things

The bottom of some street preacher

__I heard

____was my high

Made me think of what a low-life I was

But things can't change

I'm not a 20 year old

__living at his mom and dad's anymore

There is no way I can be trained

__to not get fired anymore

I am on my own

Living paycheck to paycheck

On disability for the rest of my life

So I can't blame her for leaving me

And all thee other recovering addicts

Who've had schizophrenia

__have been able to find jobs

____and keep them

But I haven't

So why would I want her back?

She'll never wanna be back

She doesn't want a crazy-paid freak

__in her life

Dragging her down

Pushing her over thee edge

She left for a reason

The same reason why other women

__have rejected me

So I get it

We are done

I'm stuck without any one

So the whole world of women

__can go fuck themselves

May their souls be torn apart in Hell

And may they suffer when they die

I wish nothing but harm on them all

But I'm not gonna get that wish

I'm out of wishes

Out of bitches

What would be the point

__of even hittin' switches?

I have fallen off the rocker

__far too many times

____to give a shit anymore

I can't be granted another relationship experience

And I'll stay inexperienced of the real thing

__without being set up with somebody

____by somebody else

And I'm just supposed to say "oh well"?
