Total Salvation


Under a pale moonlight

Only deception and betrayal

__can portray a picture

____of how things are now

I will be a fool in training

Fallowing the rain out of my mists

The sad wet sky

Knows no bound'ries

And I

A hard headed balloon

Fall short of meeting my maker

For the time being

Thee ice melts into spring

Then dries up into summer

Where all the lost dogs

__get hungry on the street

Breaking into cars

And firing their weapons ev'rywhere

One of these days they're be

__a gun to my head

But until then

I piss all over the serpent's face

And mark my territory

For me and 'Kat kind

For every drop of tear from my eyes

There is a sadness seep inside

I want some one close

But knowing me

Where's the hope?

If I scramble out of my brains

Just to hurry on my way to the flames

Who will shoot the lucky for me?

Only a talking devil

Will know which wires to cut

When dismantling the bombs in my head

If I cross myself

Who will I be?

What would I be

If not a group of guys

__in one body?

Because I'd like to know

I've forgotten how being whole was

But I will never forget

__that it was a bad idea

Just that what caused it

__had to be done

Not that what had to be done

__had to cause it

I hated being "one guy"

So I will never be that way again

The way a sausage

Makes the honey sweet

Only takes time

Enough for no one in the world

__to eat
