In A Terrible Place Of The World


I can't believe my world is over

I won't believe

'Cause life is shattered "me"

I wander off the valley of numbness

Because I don't want to feel the mess

If I could know the story better

It wouldn't change thee ending

Or would it?

Is this a puzzle I'm supposed to solve?

Well, I can't make the pieces fit

When they are too many pieces

Scrambled around in a box

__and lying in my mind

The terrible world

Isn't a better place

Not when reality

__is not real enough

How can the hairs on my head

__ever disappear?

I'm not mature enough

__to be thee old man that I am

If it gets too dark

__I don't see the glow anymore

The glow of the moon is gone

__when I can't see straight

Caged in at night

__'cause tomorrow's another day?

What is light when I'm in

__a terrible place?
