Why Would You Think I Needed To Know That?

-

Over like forever

I don't even care now

You can say goodbye now

It won't even faze me

In fact, you already have

Heard you on Love Line

Talkin' all about us

'Til I turned off iTunes

Did not want to hear it

Yes, I was listening

Good luck with your new man

Who is anything but who I am

Much more better than me

That just lowers my own

Self esteem forever

And proves you were lying

When you said I was a good man

But you were just not ready

All of that is bullshit

You with him just proves that

Pissing me off, it don't though

So you can get the fuck on

Leave my alone in my mind

Get your existence out of

__my heart

That you threw away much

__too far

I could give a crap for

Anything we were meant for

I wish I really was dying

In 20 months

__but thanks to you

I have 55 more

With no more resting home

I cannot die in Berkeley

Because there is no home suitable

For just incase I don't die

But missing you, I know I

Cannot settle for doing

There's been a trio of women

But only friends so far with

I guess that makes me worthless

Too poor to do any

Fucking thing about it

I'm better off blowing my brains

Dying by own way

If my killer decides to make me

Suffer instead of kill me

This is all your fault

But I'm supposed to be over it

Right?
