Hell Week


Another pay day in solitary confinement

An early pay day

Where the 3rd. was on a Sunday

And ev'ry one that was laughing was a monkey

As funny noises gets made

__at the zoo

I'm still trapped to my doom

I just know I've lost you

Not only do you not have a bike

But you stopped vaping

And stopped going to meetings

That was very cruel

I mean

"I know you got a job and all

But did you have to ditch me?"

You really burned a hole in my heart

Didn't even text me yesterday morning

Did we fall apart?

I cringed at the fact

__that you were never mine

Now I drown in desertion

You've gone bye-bye

And it's all my fault

I just know it is


__if this is how it's gonna be

____so be it

I already knew we weren't meant to be

"I've just got to find somebody else"

__I say

"Some one I can actually lay

And who will come to me

__in my time of need"

Which sounds "impossible"

But loving you was just too much trouble

So what's my alternative?

This is just the way we gotta live


It really is

__what it really is
