taken from my book, "If It Doesn't Compromise The Chicken"

I Am Wrong Again And Again


The more anger you put in me

The more I will mutilate my own mind

If I had the power to quit

I have the power to kill

Yet, once again

I'm only in my comfort zone

If you peal me like a potato

You will see my pain is cookable

Hurting world, around me

Why do you hesitate

To let me be?


The more I wanna be set free

The more you try to keep me as your slave

You people interrupt my dreams

How can I cooperrate with peace?

I hear you not

You sorry world

I fear of a ghastly spider

Tamed to break away

Break loose like a cooked goose

You'll want me for dinner

Once I cut off my own head


The more I hear what was never said

The more I see what isn't there

I'll eat the plated skull on my shoulders

Let me look left

Let me look right

I can stare my insanity in the face

Too undiligently

And to frequently have I gone

And heard us make a simple fright

Be the last sad night

I want to make things right

And I speak for all of me when I say that


The more I look back on all of this

The more I call myself on my own shit

Looking for the cheese

I wanna finish the maze

'Cause escape would be more grand

When I get to thee ending

I know there'll be a light

Shinning as thee end of the tunnel

I'll be so dizzy and tired

I won't wanna set the world on fire

Very good. I really enjoy it, quite unusual. Not like I have read before. Not boring.
