Thee Attraction That Swallowed Me Whole


I got to put myself out of my

Owned damned misery, gee

What can I do, to do

Something to that very me?

I want not to be talked to "at all" today

Unless by you, Lizzy



Somewhere in

Space and time

I can fight my own confrontation

Throwing a brick at my brain

No morning show could point me into

The right direction of course

But all the bees sting accordingly



Now that my mind has blown away

Now that you have my heart

Could at least my world not shake

At the mention of yo' name?

May I peel off thee oranges

Skin, to fall to the floor?

I could make my way to see

You finally open the door



Once, I landed in a puddle

Of rain water on the floor

Too many emotions scattered about

My heart escaped my brain, and all

It's tracking cookies were gone

But hourly, the dread of lights

Showing only your name

I guess I fell from the skies of love

Lookin' 'round for you



'Course, I wouldn't call this easy

I wouldn't add these up

To the ceiling

Just worn and torn are the thoughts

That have held you close inside

But thee action that I don't take

Makes the point so unreached

How I even bother to breathe

Is far beyond me

It's life I live without you
