A Shitty Life


I'm not about to settle down with anybody

I'm just gonna be strapped to an eternity

Of living without anybody

I couldn't care for a moment or two

That my heart is completely empty of loving

I've ran around in circles for days

I don't care what I have to see

I'm just not anybody

Anybody else could get along fine

Waiting for their Lil' Ms. Right

But I would rather shoot a bullet in my mind

Than sit around and wait all my life

This world is bullshit

Ev'ry one is so fake

Tell me their my "friend"

And then go and break my heart

You would not believe the scars I've been given

I don't even know what's happening to me

These days I just wanna crawl out of my box

Go anywhere to get away from here

But I go nowhere in thee end

Just an unworthy man

Living a shitty life

Anybody can see

I don't know how I'm gonna stay alive

The cars race around in my mind

My going bonkers

Is just inevitable

Whatever happened to constant flowing emotion?

Did I swallow the numbness potion?
