What I'm Sayin'


"This is the life I live the most

This is the time I spend, that I

__treasure the most

I may not be the host

But I am glad

__that I can be a man

And crumbled into sea

Fumbled away

I float on by

__like a weightless thing


And I won't hurt you


I might believe you

Just think twice

And you might realize

You're not judging a person

But an alter in one

You gonna see

__that when you become a nothing to me

I won't give a shit

And you probably won't either

So just carry on

And when I run thru your mind

Let me be a vegetable

With vitamins and minerals

To serve your brain

Unlike you do for me

When you're away with that baby daddy

Well, oxygen

Is not the object my lungs are full of

For when I drown facing down

I'm deprived of it

Because you have took yourself

__away from me

Well, how can this be?

Whenever I'm fin'ly dead

I'll be waiting for you to die next"
