Oblivious To The Clouds

-

Drownin' in a deep blue see of loss

__and headed out for town

And once I died

I came around to "thee end of" my rope

But when "I cried"

The Lord refused to help me

Find a hoe to bone

And by the looks of this

She will not

And the truth is

I cannot not

Find new love

Well, I'm on an island

Undescovered here in life

And my bruises

Turned into scars that will never heal

Sun beems horify my world

And I'm forced to see this burning Hell

Trap me in thee horizon's walls

I cannot escape these hazy days

Too bright to contain joy

All that I can see is traumatic nastolgia

Well, who would wanna remember this?

No one could help me but the clouds up above

But they are so gone

__or not enough

And if they're here

And all around

I'm too used to not looking

Or they just don't look the same

Even the nights have lost their touch

I'm in a ruts

In my gut I can sense no tomorrow

'Cause it'll just be another today

Oh, today

How it will never look like yesterday

even if the scenery changed

And here I am down on my last luck

Opening up nothing

And closing ev'rything

How did my visions just walk out on me

I'll never have a memory

If love was here

Maybe I would not care

But love runs away like a slut

__and causes harm

"I'll drink to" thee end of my sanity

As the whores never think of me

And if I could stay alive

I'd piss on ev'ryones' graves

But I'll lack the sorrow

If told to throw away the bottle

I'll go nowhwere in my head

Where's the world?

Oh, God, where's the world?

"This is" it

I'm dead

I "must be"

Because the world is not this
