It Can't Get Any Better


Keep my heart trapped on a hamster wheel

Maybe I'll feel it beating

Maybe I won't

Maybe I'll hate my heartbeat again

And once again wish for death

The life of me is already ridden

Not a reason ever to be reached

Just this torture happening

While I'm fed the goodbyes

I sink into a book of paper and a pen

Jotting down to rhythm of pain

I hate the world and all around

Not a love can I find

The forming of psychological symbols

Onto blue lines, ease my mind

Inside I am dead

But my words are alive

Thee only thing living in me

I make a blind turn out of my past

And from the depths within

I spit myself out

To live to tell the tale

Crashing like the death

That breathes thee agony

In and out of my lungs

I can't be this dumb

Can I?

Feels as though life is gone from me

Yet, my hand still strokes the pen

Letter after letter

I'm just not getting any better

The weather out here feels so lonely

And I don't got anybody

If only I could sue the world

For keeping all their women from me

I know the dying fish

Drown to the sound

Of my friend date

Cancelling herself tomorrow

And in front of the one I want too

But what's the use?
