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
