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



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


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
