How Much Time Do I Have?


If the world's not shattered

Why the Hell cry?

Complaining now

Would be the worst

When the mountains crumble

And the seas split open

It will only be

In the nightmares in me

That I tend to dream

When I ly down

My temle to die

And all my work

Has nobody in the world

To do anything with

At least on the 'net

They will already be read

I'm tryin' not to die

Not to get killed

But the haters live all around me

Thy're jealous

And they'll do anything to stop me

But I'm a strong man

"I'm betta' than that"

I'm not gonna break

Not gonna feed in

To there ways of munipulating me

To giving them the chance

To kill me

For what I stand for

I will crack up laughing

More and more

In the faces of evil

That seem to rull this world

I'm not the demon here

I have nothing to fear

My eyes

No reason to

__break into tears

I'm getting old

But I'm still young

I made love to the same woman

38 times

Doesn't that mean I will live

Past 37, & 1/2?

I can do the math

But do the figgures matter?

"Like that?"

Are they even revilent?

Or do I still have that deadline?

A contract until Augist 23rd.


Is that all the time

That the world is giving me

To finish 'Reprise?

Why can't it be up to me?

It's my life

Why should it be anybody elses decision?

Here's what I'll do

If I ever again move

No frying again until 'Reprise is finished
