They always say time's not wasted when you're wasted, but well
How can I find the girl I wanna be with
When you're not yourself?
Hope you feel what I have felt,
And though it's you I'm still all about
It's still hard to tell you that
When half the nights you're passing out.
But go on, party on until you drop
As you raise up your glass, yelling "Give me one more shot,"
Hoping that'll hit the spot, won't you please just stop?
Because I don't think this is right
I can't just watch you make mistakes
While you think that you're living life
You got me over-thinking
But I know I'll still be there whenever
Looking past your wrong decisions
And underneath I know you're better
I'm no knight in shining armor you were dreaming
I'm just a boy willing to take a chance on someone I believe in
You love energy drinks like they're a drug
you gulp down the last drip
that you can't resist.
In favor of the rush
like nothing ever felt before
you want more
and I...just wanna go to sleep.
I love sleep like a it's a drug
that pain away with one intoxicating dream
the warm blanket and the duvet
where my meditation
do you throw away the gift of sleep
Instead you waste yourself away
drinking those drinks
with the caffeine that'll shock
You feel the energy
you think it means you’re awake.
What a fool,
as your eyes droop behind the garish grin
and your head aches
but you thought it was the boredom
I’ll take advantage of my sleep,
my head up high
because I’m the one really awake
your energy drinks far away
Sleep is the ultimate friend
yourself into a deep relaxation
can’t find anything better
my love letter
O sleep, never leave
me with your dreams
awaken me with true energy
of a good night with you
is better than any man.
I dress myself in scars,
Red marks cover my papered skin.
I dance around upon the glass path,
The red is dripping down; there goes a “splash!”
Hold your breath as you see my tattered red dress,
“Isn’t it pretty?” I’ll ask, knowing your starring in awe.
So beautiful I am with this cut in smile,
Barb wire sewn on in going criss cross, to hold it together or rather apart.
Laughter resides in me,
Echoing and singing me a beautiful twisted lullaby.
Goodbye the innocent child that once lived in this body,
“Smile so cheery, little dearie,” the man repeats.
Scattered red kisses all over,
Pretty little red dress covers and hides them,
Keeping them a secret,
Never utter out those words.
Pretty little red dress seals away the lies,
Keeping them in disguise, never to be seen.
Dancing around on fate,
Hoping I won't be late.
I have to keep my promise,
And be there by eight, for my date.
I can never walk straight,
So I dance freely, with my little red dress on display,
"Red is a brilliant color you see" I sing sweetly, as I side step.
My dear pale skeleton figure can't seem to keep up,
As another "Drip, drop" goes by,
The clock never stops for me.
Take another drink, and play a song.
Listen to the tatter dress fall down to the ground,
I can't keep up, sadly I'll be late.
Say goodnight my pretty little red dress,
"Sorry to make you upset, sorry to disappoint," I whisper out.
And the man screams out with a bottle in hand.
My chin is soused in the piles of plastic cups
After nibbling myself out, the tables are bused
Onward unlatching, mussed my steady cause-
she was seducing my balance, I had to adjust
She dented concrete when sussed
She saw my incision and continuously cut
She saw my face when her description didn't fit
To be weak, anemic, and homeless I admit it
Now that my leash is leaking out of the tub
I'll remain spiraling like when in cuffs
