Leaving The Results Up To God


If my highway will be walked on

That will be the day

That I finally

Paved a path for somebody

But am I traveling to the right destination?


I sat and wondered

Everywhere I went

I stood up on my own two feet

Only to have left

What was I thinking?


When the world spun around me

So vibrant and true

I got only dizzy

And weak from within

Now only my heart misses the spin


I woke up into the foggy mourning of loss

I picked up the 'phone

Only to forget all 'phone numbers

After sleeping off my innocence of substance

Where ever I am now I cannot escape


My worst behaviors got me started

On being something interesting to the public

Now I'm finding co-existing behaviors

That came along with that

That have rubbed in what I lack


The highway is the motion

The movement is the potion

That can get me dizzy just spinning

If only I can drive it

In an independent way


But that is no option

To be rich like the rest

I don't need to set an example

Who should be like me?

Nobody needs to be too poor to procreate


Fucked in my silly world

Bottles of pills

Love from a girl

If she leaves me for more of a man

Who knows what would happen to my ass?


I embrace her now

For as long as I can

Knowing I can't give her

All she asks for

Is just going to hurt


I'll die after suffering living alone when she goes

If that is my future

But if she finds it in her heart

To no longer want more than I am

Then I'll be a traveler on a good road
