AS I SIT HERE WAITING

VERSE 1:
As I sit here waiting
I wonder what’s on your mind,
As I sit here waiting
I am saddened because this friendship was so hard to find.

As I sit here waiting
I often think of you,
As I sit here waiting
I think back to all the fun times we had shared-that now make me feel blue.

As I sit here waiting
My mind keeps thinking of your name,
As I sit here waiting
Things just don’t feel the same.

As I sit here waiting
I wonder if you are well.
As I sit here waiting
I’m surprised –that I’ve been put under this kind of spell.

As I sit here waiting
I am trying my best to forget about you,
As I sit here waiting
I wonder –how many things you said –that were true?...

As I sit here waiting
I am doing everything else I can-to erase you from my mind,
As I sit here waiting
I am feeling sad to have lost you, as you were so special and so kind.

As I sit here waiting
I can’t seem to get you out of my head,
As I sit here waiting
I try to forget all the nice things you said.


VERSE 2:
As I sit here waiting
Another day passes and I still can’t forget you yet,
As I sit here waiting
Yes, I am still trying to, trying to still forget.

As I sit here waiting
I try to read-to distract my mind,
As I sit here waiting
I wonder –was I really that blind.

As I sit here waiting
I listen to music – to try to block out your name from my head,
As I sit here waiting
I am still crying for your loss-before I go to bed.

As I sit here waiting
I talk to the person next to me-to distract my thoughts from you,
As I sit here waiting
I just don’t know what to do.

As I sit here waiting
Sadly-your name still comes to me-and I can’t stop thinking of you,
As I sit here waiting
I am still feeling blue.


VERSE 3:
As I sit here waiting
I wait for this to pass one day,
As I sit here waiting
I wonder why things didn’t go my way.

As I sit here waiting
I wonder what happened –for you-not to stay?
As I sit here waiting
I wonder –if you are okay?

As I sit here waiting
I feel a little lost –that you’re no longer by my side,
As I sit here waiting
I take this moment to swallow my pride.

As I sit here waiting
I can’t believe how much impact you had on me,
As I sit here waiting
I wonder if my heart –will ever become free.

As I sit here waiting
Each day becomes a little numb-with time,
As I sit here waiting
I am starting to become and feel fine.

As I sit here waiting
I pick up the pieces and slowly start again,
As I sit here waiting
I am feeling blessed to have so many amazing family and close friends.


VERSE 4:
As I sit here waiting
I suddenly catch myself –starting to smile,
As I sit here waiting
I realize your name hasn’t popped into my head for a while.

As I sit here waiting
I realize that I am becoming stronger,
As I sit here waiting
These thoughts disappear –longer and longer.

As I sit here waiting
Life becomes a lot easier –to find my way,
As I sit here waiting
Everything –slowly doesn’t matter so much- anymore and fades.

As I sit here waiting
My heart starts to feel free,
As I sit here waiting
I start thinking of all these things I can do/see –and what I can soon be.

As I sit here waiting
A smile comes to me,
As I sit here waiting
I dream of a new version of me-that I want to see.


VERSE 5:
As I sit here waiting
I am glad that life has put me in this new kind of position,
I start to plan/map out my new mission.

As I sit here waiting
I start to feel excited –of all the new things I can do myself,
I start to re think and create my own wealth.

As I sit here waiting
I start to enjoy more of today,
I am now loving –all the new things that have/are coming my way.

As I sit here waiting
I realize I am beginning to miss you less,
I have recently realized -to just work on me –to be my very best.

As I sit here waiting
I am happy to be where I am,
I smile –because I realize now-I have become my number 1 fan.

As I sit here waiting
I am no longer waiting for you,
I wish and prey –for all my future dreams –to come true.

As I sit here waiting
I welcome what life brings to me,
I can’t wait to see what my future –will be.

As I sit here waiting
I realize –I’m just waiting-for my next Mr right –to come to me now,
I wonder –when and how?

As I sit here waiting
-Just waiting.
Everything now is just a filler
-with time,
I realize now I am
-Just fine.

Come on doggies we can play
The Giver is gone now we have our say
Do what we want without a trick

Come on doggies we can play

Sit back smoke me free (Freedom! Freedom!)
Sit back smoke me free (Freedom! Freedom!)
Sit back smoke me free (Freedom! Freedom!)
Sit back smoke me free (Freedom! Freedom!)
Sit back smoke me free (Freedom! Freedom!)
Sit back smoke me free (Freedom! Freedom!)

Come on doggies we can play
The Giver is gone now we have our say
Do what we want without a trick
(You are green but so unclean)
Come on doggies we can play

Sit back smoke me free (Freedom! Freedom!)
Sit back smoke me free (Freedom! Freedom!)
Sit back smoke me free (Freedom! Freedom!)
Sit back smoke me free (Freedom! Freedom!)
Sit back smoke me free (Freedom! Freedom!)
Sit back smoke me free (Freedom! Freedom!)
Sit back smoke me free (Freedom! Freedom!)

Fire the drums straight to my lungs

I sit behind a computer screen waiting for a reply
-When will it come-
I sit behind a computer screen typing to the unknown
-Will he answer me-
I sit behind a computer screen watching words appear
-Why is he saying this-
I sit behind a computer screen crying as the screen goes black
-Why me-

I sit behind a phone screen waiting for a reply
-Pick up please-
I sit behind a phone screen typing into the unknown
-Where are you-
I sit behind a phone screen watching words appear
-Why is she talking like this-
I sit behind a phone screen crying as the screen goes black
-Why did she not listen to me-

I lay under the clouds as it whispers to me
-They don't understand-
I lay under the clouds as whispers turn to talking
-They don't love you-
I lay under the clouds as talking turns to screams
-They want you dead-
I lay under the clouds as the silence takes me over
-You know what to do-

I sit at the edge of my bed staring at nothing
-Soon, do it soon-
I sit at the edge of my bed tears flow down my face
-Your so close-
I sit at the edge of my bed staring at the floor
-Put it close to your arm-
I sit at the edge of my bed staring at the ceiling
-Make the motion-
I sit at the edge of my bed watching the world go black
-Good keep going-
I sit at the edge of my bed
-Goodnight-

I sit in the middle
Because its symbolic
It symbolizes my place in the world
I sit in the middle
Not just to extract myself
But to make me believe im different
I sit in the middle
Because im sick of the window seat
Sick of feeling locked in
I sit in the middle
Because you feel the sun
But you dont have to shut your eye
I sit in the middle
Because i can hear the crowds
But not enough to care
I sit in the middle
Because it makes me feel centred Like theres some sort of control
I sit in the middle
Because if i rock someone will be by my side
Hopefully curb my fall
I sit in the middle
And pretend like i dont need anyone
When the harsh reality is
I sit in the middle
Because i dont know where im going But i have to move cause the light is green
I sit in the middle
Because it shelters me
From the "world"
I sit in the middle
Because I'm afraid, I'm lost
But they say youre never so far gone that you cant find your way back
I sit in the middle
Because no one can hurt you
When you hide who you really are
I sit in the middle
Cause im selfish
Yet somehow its an improvement
Of who i used to be

I sit in the middle
Because its where i feel in control

sit back relax
focus on the sound of your breathing
sit back relax
breathe in breathe out
county hospitals aren't much to look at
but you gotta love the view of the city
sit back relax
sit back relax

there's not much to do until the shock sets in
not much to say
not much to do
so just sit there fidget with the hem of your shirt
'til the shock sets in
'til the shock sets in
relax your eyes let the view out the window blur
'til the shock sets in

sit back relax
focus on the sound of your breathing
sit back relax
breathe in breathe out
county hospitals aren't much to look at
but you gotta love the view of the city
sit back relax
sit back relax

okay it's morning now, anxiety turns to boredom
not much to say
and no one to talk to
so try not to focus on how much your head hurts
just try to breath
just try to be
just try to focus on the beat of your heart
just try to be

sit back relax
focus on the sound of your breathing
sit back relax
breathe in breathe out
county hospitals aren't much to look at
but you gotta love the view of the city
sit back relax
sit back relax

maybe they'll let you go home
or they'll send you somewhere else
but for now
sit back relax

please get me out somehow
Sit back. Relax. Take a breath. Take a minute. Take a hit. Take a drink. Take a sting. Take a shot. Take a line. Take a day. Take a time. Take a mental Picture. Take a pill. Take something you've always wanted. Sit back and chill..

Sit back, watch the ashes, their crumbling down.
Keep your head in the sky. Keep your feet on the ground.
Keep your buzz going. Don't ever come down.
Keep your face smiling and don't ever frown.
Keep the toxins flowing. Keep your head held high.
Keep your thoughts clear. Stop wondering why.
Keep your hopes up. Drink that whiskey and rye.
Keep moving yourself forward. Live life 'til you die.

Sit back, watch the ashes. They fall to the ground.
Take a listen to the birds, its a beautiful sound.
Take a minute, sit back, watch the world go around.
Take a look at the sky, so vast and profound.
Take a drag of your cigarette, and let yourself go.
Take notice of your freedom, and let the wind blow.
Take off your winter coat, go with the flow.
Take off your mask, let your true colors show.

Sit back, watch the ashes as they land on the earth.
Feel the rediscovery, and feel the rebirth.
Feel the wind on your fingertips, for what it is worth.
Feel the world, what it is, it's incredible girth.
Feel yourself drift away, feel the grass on your toes.
Feel the sun on your face, feel the wind as it blows.
Feel the love in this world, as it blooms, as it grows.
Feel the light on your soul, see the beauty it shows.

Sit back, watch the ashes, their coming, their due
Realize, though, that it's beautiful too.
Redo all of the things, that you love to do.
Remember there's people that truly love you.
Replay all of the memories that make you smile.
Revisit your best friends, and chill for a while.
Resign from your deviance, cunning, and guile.
Relax in recumbence, sit back, reconcile.

The ashes will soon, cover all of this land.
Theres nothing to stop it, no curing command.
Theres someone who loves you, so go hold their hand.
Theres a shortage of love in this world of demand.
Theres only one thought that comes into my mind.
Theres nothing new out there, theres nothing to find.
Theres everything I need, right here, am I blind?
Theres people who love me, people of my kind.

So the world can go ahead and crash down around me, I'll just look Away. I'll just take a look at the things I love.  I'll just take notice of the beautiful Day.
I'll just take another shot, I'll just sit in the beautiful green Grass. I'll just look up at the sky and let the ending pass.
I'll just be sitting with the people I love, and we'll be letting our true colors Show. We'll be feeling the grass on our toes, and letting the beautiful wind Blow.
Get ready to watch the rest of the world fall to pieces. To watch the ashes fall. Prepare for the Show.  But Don't worry...Just Sit back, relax, and let the last of that beautiful wind Blow.

____

Fall with me. Drop with me. Drop like the rain descending from the pregnant clouds overhead.  Fall like an avalanche, free and uncontrollable. Fall like the waterfall, endlessly powerful.  Fall with the world, but not in disgrace, we're falling like leaves into a beautiful place.  We're falling into eternity… discomforting but true. So enjoy the descent, it's the least you could do, for out of this fall comes a beautiful view...

Fall with the leaves. Fall peaceful and slow
Forget everything that you don't need to know
Form truces with enemies, befriend every foe
For now is the time to let everything go
Forbidden are thoughts of a peaceful demise
Forsaken, the image of peace in disguise
Forgive all the subtle and meaningless lies
Forego a renewal, re-open you're eyes

Fall with the Rain drops, now finally freed
This is the beginning of the end indeed
This peaceful decline may be just what we need
This fall from our old withered branches of greed
This pressure discharged… our old ways replaced
This wind now uplifting, this beauty embraced
This Government Tangle, this Empire, erased
This Is the End of the struggles we've faced

Fall with the Waterfall, Establish your voice
Pro-life… Pro-love… Pro-strength… Pro-choice
Protest your opinions, don't let them devoice
Progress now possible, so revel, rejoice
Provide the necessities, laughter and love
Produce something new, something unheard of
Proclaim your new freedom, and wake with the dove
Promise to fall with the rain from above.

Fall with the Avalanche, plush and severe
Don't let the ending take hold of your fear
Don't forget, there's people that still love you here
Don't let these people, your friends, disappear
Don't be afraid now…  The grass is still green
Don't take your eyes off the beautiful scene
Don't let your colors be shaded unclean
Don't let the distance grow vast in between

Fall with the ashes that cover this earth
Be Born Once Again, re-discover rebirth
Believe in true beauty, for what it is worth
Beware of this world, its incredible girth
Below you are roots from which you can grow
Beyond the Horizon is the end as we know
Belong To A Bigger Picture, go with the flow
Become something less…  Sit back… Watch the show.

Fall with the ashes, but not in disgrace. Finally we can escape from this place. The government gone, the Empires erased.  We can Fall with the raindrops, with beauty embraced.
Take off your masks, let your true colors Show. Let the sun shine bright, let the moonlight glow.  Revisit your best friends, Let yourselves go.
and let the very last of that beautiful wind blow…

I sit upon this mountain
and I watch the world below
I sit up on this mountain
and wonder where I could go
I sit upon this mountain
because it's cool and free
I sit upon this mountain
because there's no one here but me
I sit upon this mountain
and I let down my hair
I sit upon this mountain
it was just too busy down there
I sit upon this mountain
and I see you worry and fret
I sit upon this mountain
and I begin to wish
I wish you would take a deep breath
I wish you would not quit
I wish I could give you a mountain
a mountain where you could sit.

If I die in a school shooting
I'll never go home again.
My room will sit unused,
A capsule frozen in time,
A snapshot of how I was.

If I die in a school shooting
I'll never see my dog again.
She will sit at the front door
Waiting for me and wondering,
Why I never came home.

If I die in a school shooting
I'll never graduate from high school.
My yearbooks will sit stacked
Stopped short of their goal,
Missing years that should have been.

If I die in a school shooting
I'll never see my mom again.
She will sit distraught,
Planning a funeral
For a child taken from her.

If I die in a school shooting
I'll never see my friends again.
They'll sit together, missing me.
One empty seat among them,
A constant reminder of their loss.

If I die in a school shooting
I'll never see my little sister again.
She will sit through high school
Knowing I can't guide her through,
That she has to figure it out alone.

If I die in a school shooting
My school will be stained.
Pools of students lives will sit,
Blood tattoos on the brick structures,
Marks of death ground into it.

If I die in a school shooting
Everyone will wear black.
They'll send their thoughts and prayers
To a town marred by death,
Forever to be the home of a shooting.

If I die in a school shooting
Will the world change?
Or will I become one of hundreds  
Of kids who have to die?
What will it take?

If things continue this way
Children will have to live in fear.
They'll look over their shoulders
Always worried and wondering,
If they'll die in a school shooting.
The state of Florida is now home to the two most deadly mass shootings in American history. Pulse Nightclub was attacked in my city, I have friends who attend Marjory Stoneman Douglas in Parkland. My little sister often fears going to school. I'm afraid to graduate and leave her. I want to be able to protect her if something happens. I hate that we have a reason to be afraid... That it's reasonable to have these fears. I hate it so f*cking much.

I sit in the shower, wishing for my brain to work the way it should.
I sit in the shower and let the water beat against my face, hoping that will drown out my thoughts and insecurities.
I sit in the shower and cry because I know no one will hear me.
I sit in the shower and question my importance here.
I sit in the shower and gag myself while I sob quietly.
I sit in the shower and take apart razor blades and let them dance across my wrists so that I will stop numbly staring at the shower wall.
I sit in the shower and wonder, if I should really be here tomorrow.
So, how do I tell my friends I sit in the shower?

— The End —
