Getting Passed It

-

These fucked up feelings

Running pain thru my veins

Collapsing each thought

Into my petrified mind

I can hardly manage life

It spins out of control

Like a shatter in a light bulb

The light in my head is now dull

And when the slightest pleasure

Can measure the future

And pronounce thee outcome a "good chance"

That "all will be O.K."

It's slowly enough strength

To get up and go

And just carry on

With the faith that I'll manage

And ev'rything turns out fine

A new testimony to proclaim

On surrendering, each time

That the wrecking ball of spite

Tries to knock me off my seat

Of good times
