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
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
