Are You Calling My Heart A Liar?


After burning in the flames of heartache

I know there's no going back

To the days of loving feelings

Those days melted away

A strand of hair falls off my chin

And the light in my mind

It has gone dim

Yes, God

I know

This is my shit

But I sit here weightless

And caught in a comatose

I can't begin to care

Love will be nowhere

And I am so deader than a doornail

Mostly, for good


They scatter before me

And I am skinny dipping

In a well of pain and drown

My world is bullet proof


In my dreams

Where no one can kill me

Thee only place I can live forever

But I

Hit the sidewalls

Squirmin' up to get that egg

The teacher said I was a pest

I'll never be there in my head

Why should I be there?

The wine gallery is closed

Heaven, you can't help me!
