The Garter Belt

-

Who am I?

Who am I now?

Who was I then?

What is this sound

That came to be

Inside of me?

I've been locked out

Of reality

I've been ditched by

My own memroies

Some one tell me

What happened to purity?

I always thought

That I would save myself for marriage

But I guess I didn't have to wait

I thought I'd never kill anybody

But I guess I couldn't predict chaos

I thought I'd never take drugs

But I guess I never knew myself

Full of distortion

I'm speechless and out of reach

When I lay down

After forcing myself to sleep by Lunesta

I can't help but know

That life just got one more day shorter

And we all have tears building up inside

That we try to push down and not cry

They say "the ones who succeed in not crying

Get to run away from their pain"

But what kind of success is that

When it just piles up into the back of your brain?

I know I just can't be normal again

Though it's all I yearn for these days

I look to the skies

When the sun is about to be setting

I see thee only thing in me

That has not changed

Is the love I feel

For the girl in my dreams

That I dreamt as I kid

She's thee only memory I can see

Thee only memory that is strong

She's what keeps me going on

And when I caught that garter belt

I realized what those dreams

Were telling me

Now I'm just waiting
