I Know Where This Is Going


In a destructible manner

The people saw off each others' thoughts

And in every way possible

The tossings and turnings

Of everybody


To have a good night's sleep

Doesn't add up

Pointless bristles

Just wavy weaves of time

Swallowing us up

And until the day you love me

I will suffer my heart away

And until I reach out for you

In an exceptable way for you to

Want me to

I have no use in trying

To get things back the way they were

I guess 3rd. chances are not for real

I guess I'm lame

I will waste away now

Watching the fog disappear

Into the day

Letting the world spin you away

From me

Who needs me if you don't?

Fucked up

Why can't fucking up

Ever be fixable?

I just drop

The people just don't help

Hopeless to ask the world

To help me get you back

But this year I won't be like that

This year

I will let by-gones be by-gones

And just move on

Fuck love

It doesn't last

But if it does for you

Then this don't apply to you

But as for me

This is my life

And there won't be

Any one in it

If I can't think any one elses thoughts

I'm going to have to think my own

These days
