On MY Side Of The Storm


No one remembers

I am the nothingness they want

No one can care

Forget my wonder

I'll be all that I am

Remembered to shatter

__didn't I?

"Have faith

Don't rape!"

Yeah, that's hat they all say

I could remember

Who the Hell could haunt me?

I'm just a bowl of clam chowder away

Why would I realize

That the battle I am fighting

Is with my mind?


Cease fire? no, open fire

This obviously wasn't my life to live anyway

If I was this thing

That everybody wanted

How much better

Does my loyalty to justice have to be about

The turning of qualities

__hurt by the motions

____of every ones' hate

______as it falls

________all around me?

I don't want to be "nothing" to you

But what else can I be?

It's just my ego

That wants anything from you

How 'bout I let go

And let's never see a time

Where comfort can be my normal day

Around you

I don't wanna be close to Symbol

Does that mean I want you still?

I'm over the hill

Does that mean you could be?

I don't wanna rush my own day

__in age upon you

I know you just entered your 30's

A year ago

But I'm half way done

It don't at all make me feel


Just, act


I make not the same mistakes

"I guess I grew up

A little too much"

Is all I can see of thee outcome

'Cause now I gave up on love

Love has been the fall of my death

And death has drenched

My soul, in my head

Work me not into the simple life

'Cause I'm not a child anymore

I'm too old for a slap on the wrist

I'm doing "life without letting

Any one close to me"

I chose to plead "guilty

Of repelling my

__social circle

____off of me"

Like a bug spray

I have sprayed on my aura

To kill all who are too stupid

To get off of my skin

And suck the blood from my veins

But no one I know

That actually knows me

Is stupid enough to not leave

That's why I'm all alone tonight

God gives!'

And I don't give a fuck!

Have God give you

What you wanted out of me
