Before I Kill You


The sloppy paths, that I don't care to cross

Why would I hang out with a crowd of lettuce

If the crowd would only just leave?

I breathe the dust, from thee air, around me

As if I was thee only one

Who could believe in any one

"I don't know my own pain," that's true

But when I turn on the Tv., and take a look at the news

There's nothing but drama, and all it's pain

I pick up the pieces, about "where is my brain"

A laughing world, where nothing makes any sense

Nothing can come to me, easy, while I rest

But I won't scratch my skin

I'll just white knuckle it, thru thick and thin

I'll never know why anybody ever sees the time

To change a flat tire, while they're on a ride

"The master of my own thoughts" is who I am

But, no, I never will be "the man

Who can think of anything

While the birds fly and sing"

Robbed by the minute, is the world, around me

I will not find the way to infinity

I'll just seem to to have lost

Because my mouth just wants to drop

In the most of my madness, I sleep on a bed

Made for the monsters in my head

And you'll never remember what's wrong with my ass

You'll just think I'm funny, and so you will laugh

And death will become of me, and then you

As you wonder why you're seeing your face on the news

You cannot watch your weight

When you're pregnant anyway

So just say "hello" to my machine gun

I swear "you and him will fall in love"

Where ever I'm meant to kill you

Is why I will kill you, my darling little loon

Pick up the pieces of my heart

That you ran over with your shopping cart

I never said you were the one for me

I only insinuated that "nobody has to see

You making a mockery of everything I think

That seem to always be clogging up the kitchen sink"

All this food that we always wanna eat up

But can never finish after we cook it all up

I'll laugh at you, if you wanna

And I'll kill you, 'cause I gotta

So say goodbye, to life as you know it

You thought you'd survive me, but you blew it
