Too Different For People Now

-

In the cracking up of my mind

The world seems just fine

I know nothing is going to feel right

But I can live my own life

I'm not the funniest clown around

But I know I can make myself laugh

And that's enough

Now without a meaning

I will grieve thee evenings

Nothing but time on my hands

And maybe that's what I've been missin'

Terror in my mind

Wonder why I'm all alone again

I don't have a crew to kicking it with anymore

Burning's not a habit in my life anymore

I can no longer care

If I don't get to hit a bong

I can no longer understand

Why it's so important to people to get high

But it's fine with me if that's how people are

Just don't see a reason

Why I'd have to tag along now

Now that I'm clean

Now that I've lost thee urge

Desirelessness has become of me

I live the miracle of a drug free life

In spite of there being no way to socialize

Now that I don't do social things

Like smoking weed and drinking drinks

Droppin' doses and swallowing pills

It's not worth it anyway

I don't need an asshole to disagree with me

So I can feel completely free to be me

A boring motherfuck

But I don't give a fuck
