Currently dashing the hopes of my parents.

  • Mood:
  • Music:

And yet this monster sleeping deep inside, I need so I may feel alive

I've painted my picture
I sang my song
I cannot be silent
about a life gone wrong
I once was a poet
with masterful tone
Why be the best
when it leaves you alone
I have no purpose
I have no soul
because I have nothing
to make me whole
I gave you obsession
and I gave you sin
Yet you'll never know
the places I've been
You listen intently
but you hear not what I've said
For a living person cannot hear
the ramblings of the dead
Expression has failed
it cannot set me free
Joy is the lie
that life promised me
So now I scoff assertion
In sadness I am cursed
For my bemused salvation
left me abandoned first
