"One day I'm gonna run away and never come back and when I come back I'm gonna be the knife master" - Jimmy The Rev Sullivan. Not much of a deep meaning but it makes me laugh.


So this is what its come to








Surrounded by sorrow








I close my eyes








Not wanting to see tomorrow










I Listen in


Their words are quick


I love them


Yet they make me sick



Who do I trust?



Who's side am I on?



I worry about them


From dusk till dawn



Sometimes I feel surrounded



Clouded with dismay


Yet I must be strong


And get through another day



They say life's a battle



I say it's war


Sometimes I wanna get even


Wanna even up the score



A cloud hangs over me


I'm drowning in the rain


I wanna reach the surface


And defeat the pain



Yet I'm stuck at the bottom


I can't get any air


I'm drowning in a Wave


Of my own despair
