So Hard To Keep My Work Safe


I feel the world runnin' away




It seems I walked out on nothingness




I may be over the sounds

Of my consciences

But heal me full of it

I may just bask again

In the depths of pain

That won't let me go

I thinlk

I think

I think again

And I think I think

But I'm so full of it

That if I think about it

What good is thinking about it again?

Wel, we'll never be the sparks

__of the flames that torture these

____empty promises

______that crawl out of our mouths

________that we make to one another

I know what I mean

I know not to mean it

__to mean

____that it's getting hard

______to re-mean it all over again

But let me slam the sandbags on

__the ground we carry around

Walk across a moon, sedated

Wander to the left

__and to the right again

Wondering why I'm left

__to not be able to handle it

I know it yerks at my soul

And travles to thee unknown

The truth is far away


It is still here

Like I am sore all over

Like doing time all over

I don't ever wanna start this over
