Hanging Out Of Balance With Motion


This whole lost world

Is being filtered thru and thru

I cannot look

At anything and see what I used to see

The doctor said

That a little pill will do

Well, quack, it didn't

What am I to do?

I have no memory

Of the things I used to see

Even my acid trip

Still blotted out the past

I used to see it

Used to see it good


It's gone

No more May

To be in love

With now

I've shed off of my skin

And out of my head

She threw me out of her heart

And out of her way

Nothing but rain

Where ther mem'ries 'possed to be

But it's been 17 years

__since I could remember a thing!

Could of had some fun

Could of lived my life up

Yeah, but now?

Even my public will laugh and despise

Doesn't make sense

And I'm going to die


A gap in my life

And a place where I can't speak

Wandering thru the pages

__with a pen without a dream

But there's a God

Who sits up high

And crumples thee Earth around me

There's a mood

That I go thru

That scratches my heart until I bleed

I've past the point of awareness

I guess I'll put my tries to rest

If I could pick up the chips now

__and make a run with it

I wouln't place a bet again

But the devil is a tempter

Who crawls into my head

I'll see to it I die this way

And never run away again
