Unwilling Surrender


Chopped up like a bubble

Exploding into outer space

That madness has escaped me

I'm free to do whatever I want

I can leave this world

And bleed to death in the tub

Or I can learn to go on

Starting with today

The garbage on my brain

Can be taken out, just like the trash

After I compact my thoughts

And throw them away

The matter of my nothingnesses

That I sprinkle all over the world

Where laughing hyenas

Cry hysterical giggles in the night sky

Why love can be taken out of the context

Of a ruining about to begin

Who needs to look for food

When all I need to eat is in my head?

I'll wipe the thoughts off of the dishes

When I clean the world I used to know

Off of my dishes in the sink

Where I used to think

Before I went blind from blinking

Sinking into a bottomless pit

And dying for all the world to see

My magical world, shatters like glass

As I untangle myself

From thee aftermath of smoking too much grass

Who needs to get high

When we're already going to die anyways?

I'd like the thank this bag of ketchup

For excusing me from the table

To say goodbye to all who weren't able

To join me in blowing up

As I climb inside my mind

And stay there for quite some time

A very long while in my head

With all the dead brain cells

As my only friends
