"Banished"

-

My brain got mushed

And I scrambled my thoughts

Imbedded into anger

I killed the light

That shined upon me ev'rynight

Letting go

I'm terrified

With a ruined soul, I'm doing good

No time to say "there is no use"

Sleeping thru

I'm blowing up

Blowing up, I've said "goodbye"

Blowing up, I've said "goodbye" to you

My ruined social life is sad

But I know things aren't so bad

Aiden happens to be alive

No one got hurt that night

I

Just have to stay

__gone

And while I am banished

__into the wreckage

____of what's left of my life

Suddenly I am forced

__to lose my friends

But I've lost those before

It's nothing to cry about

There is no doubt

I deserve this punishment anyhow

Being forgetful enough

To attack your brother

__with your baby in the room

Has condemned me to doom

And all I keep thinking is

"How did you know it was gonna happen?"

And "what were you telling me

__after it happened?"
