Holding On To My Dear Life

-

However I solve my problems

__is up to God

Whatever I choose to feel

__is up to my heart

My thoughts lie above

And the knowledge just runs

Runs away from me

Whatever I'm being

I cannot explain the pain

Whatever I'm not knowing

I cannot escape today

When my muscles don't relax

I'll be top of my class

But when failure bites me

__on my ass

____I will just laugh

However can I be in love with you?

You won't hit me like a comet

__from space

Where "alone" can make me fade

__from being

Hell, I'm lost from the likes of you

You don't need to see my heart

Just whip me like the pain

It's far better to eat the Twinkies

Than it is to live life easy

When I feel the domino effect

__take it's place

____I only stall

______and get stuck in a slump

I think I'll just continue

__to eat nachos for lunch

Up on a cloud

__is no place to sit and munch

So please keep me alive

For all of time

Death sucks whether up or down

I don't wanna just float around

Can't I just stick around?

Maybe just stick this out?

I wanna try this whole "life" thingy

If only I knew how
