Back Pains Today


Leveling my brain doesn't sound easy

Not when pain is in each thought

As the days progress

Back pain addressed

Not much feedback

The world walks off a ledge

Everybody falls

Everybody dies

The time to sit with my feelings is "now"

But I don't have any

Not emotionally, at least

So I feel nothing but my ribs hurting

And only God knowing why

Hasn't told me why, either

But I'm not the one to freak out

__and buy a drink

That's not gonna stop what I think

That's only gonna magnify the thoughts

And wipe out my clean time

And encourage me to use harder things

And then I'd be in deep shit

I don't know what happened to my back

But I don't want any crack

And I'd like to keep it that way

If I ever found out what is wrong

__with the world

I might get some answers

But I doubt that ever happening

Why would anybody wanna explain anything

__to me?

The world's too busy judging me

To tell me a single thing

Even lab rats know how to sing

So why don't I? you ask?

Because fear is kicking my ass

Life just isn't easy enough

God made living too hard

But I'm not gonna blame A God

Who sits up on a throne

__condemning people

I'm gonna put all my money

__on waiting for the pain to go away

____on it's own, over time, by itself

Though, that alone, won't take me out

__of this Hell

There's nothing too special

About a sunny day

Which is nearly ev'ryday

If I were a chicken

__I would have stopped layin' eggs by now

And have killed myself

But enough about me

Let's hear about you, and your bucket of puke

Where do you like to throw up at?

Where's your favorite barfing spot?

What does your sister look like?

Is she hot?

Can I call her up?

Does she look like you?

Should I maybe not?


I know you're probably sick of me

__and my thoughts

I bet your would like to crawl up into my dome

And kick my brain out

But you, alone

__know that that's not very nice

But I would let you

I would let you

And I would love you to

Be my guest

Kick my thinker out

And don't hold back

Give it a good "smack!"

Give us both a good laugh

We could use a little of that

Isn't it obvious?
