Pointless With The Point


My bruised and battered mind

Has grown it's brain cells back

I can think again

Or so it seems

I say nothing that's on my mind

How can I?

I don't talk where the dogs walk

Or I'd end up dead

Deader than you know

Deader than you know about

How could this all be wrong?

My hated soul has become a wreck

And ev'ry one in my playhouse

Has been eaten by Mickey Mouse

If you don't know what is wrong with me

How can we get along?

I know I make you people sick!

That WAS the whole point

But it was a mistake


Not knowing how I'm gonna get out

__of this world alive

Never seems to strike me as weird

If I ate what I say to you all

How could I digest eating myself

__like a cannibal?

I will make no list of who's out to get me

Even if it hurts to keep that a mystery

When I draw a line in the sand

And stand on my head

I will hear the words

Climb up to the top of my head

Just to jump off

When I break out in laughter

I know it's held against me

In the most shameful way

I know what is wrong

But I like it at times

So much, that it takes over my life

These silly little desires of mine

Seem to be the problem

Yet, knowing that

__doesn't make the problem disappear

If I shift into higher gears with it

And spin out of control

I will not see the light of day

Make it's way

To unblind me

When I fell from such a high point

And emptied my overflowing views

Nothing but a lack

__of what I used to have

Ever stays prominent

When I want to be seen as "nasty"

It does still just get me nowhere

In the long run

But it's so much fun

So with that

Carry on
