I Won't Be My Normal Self, Will I?

-

If the possession of my brain starts to wander

I will be left alone with all the buzzards and flies

The sharp nail, twists around, in the corner of my life

I pissed off my heart and went over thee edge

Never to again return to the Fall of my freedom

I aimed at my lost ideas, to try to get them back

Into a cluttered stagnant position, I flew away

Getting so pointless with walking strands of life

I heard all the dangers collapse shortly after

But when my mouth tried to scream "bloody murder"

I learned I was not able to stand fit

I don't recognize my own findings of light

Though the buildings shake before my eyes

I can never truly notice the terror

Harmless reasons that gag me senseless

Just folds the cards all wrong

And I don't get all the remainings just yet

The pizza box will laugh at me

With no other meaning, but to hurt my feelings

Grinding teeth lock in place sometimes

And a huge long lasting heart attack

Will come and study it's own self

With poise and promises for a junk yard loiter

That lays there in the rubble

Collecting treasures on a daily basis

Which ever became the joke

Is still gonna always be unknown to me

Maybe it's the Kat in me

That's jut so used to Hell

I should have never been freed
