My Empire of Hurt

The music is here for
me now, you’re not
So think before you
open your mouth

No one controls the way I think
They just limit the way I act
Which is good because if they didn’t I’d
Be a lunatic
But sometimes I slip past their limits
Sometimes   I         slip outside
Sometimes my right eye bleeds over
And am left with everyone who’s died
I ask them questions but they don’t listen
I want to know the future so bad
They all scream at me in their instant
Need to confirm impacts they had
But I don’t recognize a face
A voice, a smell – anything
So I just let them tear at me
And eat
And eat
My sanity

I wake to find it was just a dream
FUCK!!
It was
Just
A dream
I spit up blood in the sink
And I don’t even wash it down
It feels like death is always way too busy to come around

Oh yeah I forgot, being awake sucks.

As Sweet As

We have control over the way we go
But we never know the way
We have control over the way we go
But we never know what a day
On the way will bring…

I can be as sweet as I want

I am the good guy

So say goodbye

Don’t let the shit they put you through smear the past
On the future
Just seek out what you want to get used to
And suture
The broken edges of your broken heart
Back together
And I’ll be there to umbrella the weather Together
With you
One laughter from two
Souls…

We have control over the way we go
But we never know the way
We have control over the way we go
But we never know what a day
On the way will bring…
Will it lead to a pain that stings
And if so
Is it worth it? How long will it last?
If it’s too much to stand can we ever get back
To where we started?
Will life ever become as sweet as I
Am when you’re on my mind?

Medusa

If I wanted you I could have you
It’s clear how I’d have to act
But I’m not an actor

Woman, if you don’t like me for me
Then leave me
Alone for
I’m not someone who needs someone to hold
Though I desire
And think of you
I don’t need you here
To hold

Even though I don’t want to be left alone…

I’d rather be me
Than have my heart beat
to stone
