What Difference Would It Make?


Needless To Say

__"my mind is broken"

Having to do a runaround

Much too often

Gives me the biggest headache

I could climb the tallest mountain of emotion

Only to be crashing down

Being so broke sparks laughter

So I will giggle back at them

I know it's funny

This poorness

Maybe I could kill a cow

Have sex some other day

Tonight I'm gonna suffer my single days

I leave this world eventually

Maybe a sideways frantic lullaby

Just staggers me in the position

Having the word "junk"

__stamped on my forehead

Could I be this stupid?

Of course she doesn't love me

Or she wouldn't be moving

I could lay back and let the laughter roll

I could be played in any game

I could die never winning any love again

They all get lost in thee end

They all just want to flee from me

These women don't have a heart

Magic'ly disappearing all the time

And when I can see them fall

For my sorry ass

They always seem to pick themselves up

And run



Don't know why you're going

But you're just like thee others

You want nothing to do with me

So you fall in love elsewhere

Fuck off

__and fuck you

I got a life to live

And I don't got time

__to make you love me back

You didn't love me first

And that kind of love

__is the worst!

I'll lock myself in my room

__when you're gone

____with only a book and

______the pen you gave me

________to pass the time

__________that I couldn't spend with you

"It's how we do it ev'ry weekend"

I'm going mad

But madness gets fun

You'll stay number one

When replacing you don't happen

I'm gonna cry in peace

Leaving the pieces of my shattered brain

In the compartment where voices remain

Just a lost luxury

__to have a mind anyway

Who can afford to think anyway?

You're not like me anyway

I don't have the foggiest idea

Why I love you

Maybe you're just all I want

But you still have thee ability

__to meet some one else

Some one other than me

So what's the use?

At least somebody else deserves you

I refuse to make an effort

I'm not gonna let myself look pathetic

Chasing after you

I've out ran that track before

I'd rather be with a whore

Than strive to meet your perfect standards

I won't tell you "I love you"

I'd just wind up beating myself up over it

__if I was to utter that out

I'm having fun telling who I wanna tell

And making sure I don' tell you

Maybe I find it a thrill

Maybe it's because I'm ill

But I can't change

This'll happen again with some one new too

Though what could be worse

__than being too chicken?

I can answer that

This becoming a house

With no women even coming around

Which it will be

And I'll have to smash my mind

And you'll have the time of your life

Oh, this won't be good

How I'm just not like you

Thank you for reading, but I have no choice but to hold on to her. I won't be getting a replacement this time. She's perfect for me.
