I'm Not Crazy Anymore, But I'm Still Retarded

-

A horny man

Is what I am

I just want somebody

To stick it to

But lucklessly, there's nobody

__oh, why? why? why?

Well, I'll drink a lil'

And just be down

A saddened man is what I will

Become

-

A look of terror

Uppon my face

A horror to look at me and see that

"I'm not" fine

__"at

____all"

I'll close my eye

And shut my heart

So no one and nothing can

Bother me

-

Let's face the facts

A am so lame

My brain will only operate

In

__such ways

That let's me know that

I've no mind

I nervously

Just start to stitch

And sow the seas of my heart

__that's been

All so torn

__apart

-

I speak with a childish voice

Like a retarded 30 year old

Even though

I'm not

__30 yet

Oh, I so hate my voice

The way I talk

The kind of boy I must be

To sound

__like

____that

-

I hate myself

With such self loathe

The whole damned world knows

I'm a retarded guy

maybe I should

Just grow up some more

Feel more confident

And maybe

Just maybe

__I

Can sound my age
