i don't feel right
i'm not myself at all
i got no sleep again last night
(if i could only fall.......

asleep)
but i still pray
as i always have, to keep
sane, and to stay

calm. what an emotion
who wants to feel like that?
i don't want to move in slow motion
i like speed, i like black

darkness. i miss the darkness?
i miss the sadness
i miss feeling hopeless
because everything now is madness

i'm too warm
and i'm too cold
at the same time?
and truth be told
all the bad thoughts swarm,

around me again
as they did before
the same old pain
i still feel the way they tore
through me and fell on me like rain
and left me crying on the floor

but i'm stronger than this
i'm better this time
i can survive without the razor's kiss
or a drug-related crime
