Barely Getting By

-

I got all this time to kill

I take oh so many pills

I don't know why

I don't know "why am I alive?"

Keep thinking "soon"

"Soon I am still gonna die"

The blowing of smoke will soon

Just be vapor~"what to do?"

I don't know "how sir?"

I don't know "how's that healthier?"

I'm in the rooms

Not calling defects, "assets"

Because they aren't

They aren't accepted in this life

And "where?"

"Where is the mouse that ate my cheese?"

I fluttered thru the maze of pain

I swallowed ev'ry drop of blood

"You think it's funny?"

"You think it's funny to be me?"

Oh

So that's why I'm the laughing stock of town

OH!!!!!

If only I can kill the world

__I could be happy!

But I am stuck here in judgement

Just barely getting by

Pill after pill after pill

And still no one to kill

I thought pills were supposed to make my life better

But ev'ry one around me is still alive
