Couldn't eat so
I smoked a cigarette,
now all I've got is shallow satisfaction and
But I'll pick my scabs, just to
Pick my scabs as if I could find myself--
finger-deep in my own left thigh.
Missed you today,
I turned the TV on so I wouldn't
feel alone and
let reality slip
And I pick my scabs to remind myself,
Pick my scabs to encourage better health
And I pick my scabs so I can know they're healing
I always fell in love with
moments, never with the man.
I danced through stars to
love songs I couldn't understand
And I pick
my scabs, just to remind myself
And I pick my scabs,
just to pretend to know
the nobility of hell
Pick my scabs like I wish I
could crack apart my shell,
let it shatter
let it shatter
But you can't se it, so to you it doesn't matter.
Flesh will always lie, but the
scars are what remember.
Bitter past will grasp upon you
but surviving is what matters.
pick my scabs
to remind myself
Remember at school ?
Sat in a row?
For a team to pick you to go
You silently prayed you would never be last
Knowing you can't play was bad enough.
Years pass by then the dates begin
The one you like always with him.
Not just him
It's HIM again !
The one who left you on the bench
Time moves on more years pass
You meet again they are married now
The perfect pair or so it seems
He still shares who is in your dreams
A few years more you cross again
He's on his ass and life has changed
The perfect pair no longer together
The love you thought would be forever
But now its odd he's all alone
She flew the coup his lover gone
People change as values do
As time erodes both me and you
She wanted more or was it him?
Communication imploded in
So now you share a different bench
No now picks who ends up friends
You raise a glass to drown the past
An echo now
So now full circle years past
Still they know you not
You write for you not lovers lost
You write to record the thoughts you have
The good the bad the sad the mad
You write in hope it's understood
Now others read the words you write
From far away day and night
Pick me, pick me it matters no more
For those who read already know.
