It Takes Me Away From You


Don't tell me you love me

Don't tell me you need to

You won't be the part of me I would need

To bleed out in the sink

Where you can get a taste

__of what's in my needle and spoon

"I love you"

I don't say that too often

Now pick me up

'Cause I have fallen

I know I'm worthless

I know you don't care

It's over


I just love the scent of your hair

I know you despise me

It's written all across your face

The way you love me

Is not nearly the same

How can you love a junky?

How can I pay you back all this money?

You aren't the funniest bitch in town

But I'll laugh at ya

No one else can

You were the love I did not want anymore

I lied to you

I said "I'd be the door"

But I won't even open

So what the fuck was I saying?

Your habit resting brain awaits

Along your way to The Pearly Gates

Just drop me a line from up above

And maybe I'll pick up the pieces of my life

Or send my carcass in a box to Heaven

With my attached suicide note

And as life has emptied itself

Of all it's hope

Maybe love will exist

In somebody elses' relationship

But as far as you and me are concerned

"Our boat will not float"

You and me are like a joke

But I don't wanna laugh anymore

So slip away

And dream of love

If that is what you want

But "I don't love you

I'm in love with drugs"

I know it sounds silly

I know it seems rare

But "I prefer this way of wasting away

In a meadow

In some far off land

Of 'la la'

And wonder"

I can't pay you back for all the help you've been giving me

But like I said

"You're only been helping me die"

I can never mean to you

What you mean t to me

Or meant to


My mind is gone

I told you "nothing's wrong"

But we can't go on forever this way

Nothing lasts forever

And you won't hear from me

When I'm finally in limbo

It's just not you I prefer to rent

Not when this baggie has my name on it
