The Battle And The Horror

-

Who cares

__if my brain don't wake up

____tonight?

I'm going to sleep the night thru

My heart

__and my mind, are not one

____today

So why don't you just lay an egg?

The stars

__may shine on a whisperin' wind

But jealousy is as it stands

The words

__that I use, to describe

____the pain

Are going to eat up my brain

-

Wind

Chimes

Calls of the crime

The battle and horror of it all

The more

I spend time

Just counting the frogs

The more I look up to the sky

Why?

Why

Is this world

Not mine?

I wake up

__and never know why

-

Fields

Of promises

Jars

Of wine

The moment

__I walk my own plank

Baseball bats

__hitting

____the heads of women

Who dared to throw my love away

I'll kill

I'll kill

Don't care if it's ill

The more heartfelt

__the less that it's real

And when

__I wake up

____to die

______tonight

Don't ask if it is still right

-

Hem

Lines

Talks of the times

The workings of my betraying hands

Off off

__the subject

____I don't know what is

I will hear all the madness I can

So if

__I wander up

____to

______the skies

I'll remember where I had once been

The moisture in thee air

__of reality

The moment the screams

__were heard

Getting by

__without a lie

To tell

__myself

"It's going to be

__not alright"
