But You'll Never Show Up


Who doesn't know my pain?

Who hasn't been like me?

Thee only thing

That stands apart

Is that I am still like this

A pathetic piece of shit

While every one who's been in my shoes

__has changed

This is thee only life I can know

I spin at ease

In my dizzy head

Tossed in thee air

__like a coin before

____a football game

______is my luck

But the tosser

__is not the catcher

So who can give a fuck?

I will only breathe the fire

As the pig skin of my head

__gets kicked

Again and again

No one wants me to have you

Not the way that I want to have you

So I will hold it against the world

Who made it so

__that you are not real

Forgetting it's all my fault

But how can I stop myself?

I love you too much
