Gracious words, 
Fly from her mouth, 
They flutter, 
Like birds in the sky, 
Please ask me why, 
I stand down to her nice ways, 
I feel she is trying to much, 
Carrying to much hurt, 
With my hands in the dirt, 
The grass of faith, 
Covered in blood, 
I chase her down, 
She runs, 
Like she is partaking in the race, 
A marathon, 
Trying to collect her faith.. 


The smoke, 
Escalates, 
The chimney as black as coal, 
In a house full of putrid memories, 
With scars embedded in the cotton sheets, 
With blood up the walls, 
With death masking the inner core, 
The dreams are struck down with sores, 
Pain rages through, 
The structure of love, 
It breaks into pieces, 
Scattering the base of isolation.. 

Peel me from the ground, 
And stand me up, 
Place my hand at the sky, 
I am like a lonely statue, 
Wondering why, 
My life is passing me by
Passing me by.. 

Optimism is shattered, 
As pessimism strikes, 
My heart carrying to much weight, 
Surrendering to the swindler of hate, 
Dying slowly, 
In a cave of my own nightmares, 
I cant share, 
These secrets, 
With you or anyone, 
There bonded by blood, 
With hands torn, 
With minds wasted, 
By alcohol and tainted love, 
The man shaking his head above. 

The salt on the wounds, 
Passes through to the nervous system, 
The peppered pain, 
Is a unholy welcome, 
As it strings together enough pressure, 
To kill a man, 
On his feet, 
The heart shuts down, 
One last beat, 
For crying out loud, 
He falls onto the seat, 
Masked by gasoline, 
One light, 
One death, 
He goes out with a bang, 
God knew his plan.. 

Peel me from the ground, 
And stand me up, 
Place my hand at the sky, 
I am like a lonely statue, 
Wondering why, 
My life is passing me by
Passing me by.. 

Sort me out, 
Give me love, 
That's all i crave,
She is so insecure, 
And cant be saved.. 

Sort me out, 
Give me love, 
That's all i crave,
She is so insecure, 
And cant be saved..
