Battling one too many again.

Off to a running start
Words that run on and on
With that, I've done my part
Numbers tally, even when gone

Cobain saw it the same
Instead of pushing away
It made him go insane
As he chose not to stay

All things come to an end
Alienating any followers
To be repeated, over again
Like planes colliding towers

Crucify me if you will
It's a side that you feel
Emotion filled, direction shallow
I rather not, to lead nor follow

I am below your screams
Silenced by angered pain
Not that I am lost in dreams
Being Isolated keeps me sane
