Not In Control

-

I've sat there with my reasons

Tempted to think

But plainly did not blink

The words came out my mouth

But they weren't set in motion

I was dragged across a floor

Stepped upon in my head

My love-life was left for dead by God

And when the sounds of wolves

__eating my heart

____echoed in my ears

I could not swim away from the fear

"What if I were lost in amnesia?"

"What if I suddenly

__didn't know where I lived?"

"What if I left home

__and forgot where I lived?"

I know nothing of what kind of' man I am

To know if I can

__just "forget"

____like that

The gum ball machine

Doesn't know my name

The clock on the wall

Cannot tell me Jack shit!

And why ask for a friendly reminder?

That would count as a "dependence"

And I'm supposed to be mature and free

If I wait any longer

The train would still not be here

I give up on a lot of things

But I don't have to remain "hopeless"

__myself

I just have to see thee other side of time

Somewhere

Not here

As foreverly as great as can be

The stress of it all

Hackles

__and binds me with chains

Tying me to the hood of a car

And driven into a wall

"I can't think

But if I blink my way out of ev'ything

What's gonna happen?"

I'll just sit there

Tied to a tree

Left to be eaten alive

By gigantic thoughts in my mind

But at least I'll be free

When the ropes are gnawed off
