Since April 16th, I've been dressed in fatigue I'm emotionally damaged with my blood on the leaves Death purged my soul from my body; Ancient One's Creed Natural selection took her, made me realize I failed her How do you have the apple of Eden and still miss her? They say don't hold your life for a pet; I'm still held up Watching my heart swim laps in pools of bourbon cups I should have been there to see the innocence check out her eyes To hold her paw and camouflage my cardiac scars in disguise I find pleasure in resting my eyes until the new day interweaves And I have to walk this path looking into the sky with disbelief Reality wipes you out like Japan's tsunami rolling up to receive I had to find a way to deter the sob filled days and time freeze And when I have it on the ropes I see pictures and the recycle begins
