Stuck With The Guilt


Guts splattered

And another life ruined

Another life tooken

And a world of pain opens all up

I cry in my mind

Echoing all the way down to my heart

But it never comes out

I just have to keep running away

Because this pain is just too much

__to take!

I am "not O.K."

And I will never be

I will never feel free enough

__to breathe thee air in front of me

Life to death

Heaven to Hell

Why did I

Have to deal carelessly?

Drugs to cigarettes

Liquor to soft drinks

Why did I have to spill out my guts?

Plums to lickerish

Ground beef to grilled cheese

Why did Earth have to drag me

To my knees?

I'm pleading for peace

But I know that's not enough

I should never be a wish bone

I should simmer down

__but cannot

I couldn't grow up between

A witch and a demon

And I can't go back in time

To when I never met them

So how do I forget them?

It's thunder I'm runnin' from

Now rain gets me wet

__without a rain coat

Well, what kind of cost is this

__supposed to be?

What kind of loss was up to me?

I can't remember

__but incase this is all true

I will drown in paranoia

More and more
