Lost and misguided

Dreaming about death

Is it something that I did?

Holding my breath

Or am I just losing screws

Too faded to grasp

Am I insane or am I just last

Developing slower

A slow-dumb grower

Growing slower than the others

Holding onto to myself

Neglecting my lazy wealth

My life is good

My life is great

I swear I understood

Just naturally hate

Deep down in my heart

There’s a fire to be stoked

I’ll tear it apart

It needs to be poked

Provoked to grow old…
