Repetitive Mistakes

-

We are completely "done" here

"Over," is just another word to explore

Never wanting you more

"Just want what's less" to say the least

To me you just became a beast

A fairy tail is all I ask for

But I can't find my flower

With empty hands I will be

On my death bed

Shot in the head

With no one wed to my silly little mess

-

If I could pick up again

I see no trusting what life throws at me

Just a markering snapping on a newer camera

For a newer twanger, in the same old way

No one bossing my heart around

Cigarette ashes flowing down

And a midieval game face

Like a happy frown

Nothing like having it all be said and done

Eating away at the madness

Never is finished without losing love

-

If I had known better

I'd say "I fell off my high horse

Splattered

Disarranged

And gained nothing"

No apologies

No laughing times

Just a giggle now and then

Parking my eyes on thee asses

That fog up my glasses

Ev'rybody's tits here are "so big"

-

But I'm not a pig

If I was really that needy

You'd think I'd do something about it

O.K.

I am horny

But there's nothing I can do

No one I can screw

Never learned how to make a move

Now it's too late

I've unlearned it if I ever did know

I've unearned it if I ever deserved love

-

Counting the dew drops on the stars

You never took my heart

That far

"Yes" and "no" have never been heard

Not a question ever been made

You fall to pieces your own way

I already fell apart

Not knowing why

Count your goodbyes

You'll never know I had a heart for you

Shut up, and die
