Shot the shot

Got turned down

Left the next chance

With some one else

Now my world

Is a living Hell

No one to comfort my soul

I guess I'll just accept that I'm too old

I guess I'll surrender to the facts

That I will never hit that

I'll never tap anybody's ass

'Cause an angry God doesn't want me to

Probably 'cause it's a sin

Or probably 'cause I'm just never really forgiven

He just sits up there

__on His high horse

And condemns thee unsaved

__over and over again

Because we won't be goody goody two shoes

I'd get some one myself

But I'm not capable

I'd believe in myself, at least

But I'm smatter than that

I can't be fooled

At lease I'm not overconfident

No one can tell me I'm too into myself

If I'm not into myself, at all

But I still get called a "douche bag"

For the cat-calls that the Puppet in me makes

That seem to get me no where

As the rath of God

__smites me down

When I'm Puppet

__I can only laugh

As no miracle ever seem to form

I don't even try to conform

Not to a society

__that doesn't even want me around

My surrender doesn't go that far

Because society refuses to reach out to me

So I pray for an angry God to forgive me

But only the people I've hurt can forgive me

So wasting time

__I go in circles

Hated by a world

__that I can't make amends to

And pissed at myself for the way I must look

When I try too hard to control

__what cannot be controlled

I just cannot let go

I can't find A Higher Power

__that would care for me

That hit is a Hell of a blow

And I'm getting too old

To be this complacent

All I can do is wait for change

Wait for A God to remove my shortcomings

Wait for an answer to my prayers

While the clock ticks

And makes me sick
