Just As Brittle As A Peanut Chip


"I was told

That this could not be just what I want

Any longer than it is

So when I'm gonna eat the dust

I'll turn into the last soiled cheese puff

And end up laughing like a cheese puff soiled itself

Looking for it's own lost head

Like a mad ocean

Sucking the cleanliness out of you

Only to grab you by your throat

And kill you in thee end

It's like a mad burger

Laughing it's head off

As you sing to it to get to sleep

Wishing that you won't blink

How's that for starters?

Do you have a problem

With what I just said?

You'll step away from me like thee others do

And you'll wonder what they all had to eventually wonder

But like a vegetable, life won't go on

And hurdling over a hamstring pulled

Like the covers over your head

As you board yourself in your house

Locked up to keep the killers out

But what about yourself?

Don't you know you are your own biggest killer?

That don't bother me any though

It actually makes it easier for me

Does my job for me

I love everybody I have driven to suicide

They made life less hard"
