Favorite Quote:
I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I am not

It's my life and I'd like it to stay my own,
Each year, getting shorter as they grow,
And each minute that slips between my hands
Is a lifetime gone, but its only a grain of sand.

It all moves so fast, and I'm moving so slow
Its like someone hit fast forward
But forgot to press "Go"
The seconds keep ticking and I'm left behind,
To pity myself and the rest of mankind.

"What a beautiful morning!"
OR so says the weather man,
But it gets drab, it gets boring
When everyday is such a beautiful morning.

I'm drowning in side a lake that I made,
There's nothing I can say except that
Sorrow is a mistake
So hold on to the bar 'til your knuckles turn white
And scream out loud as your sorrow takes flight

It's a nightmare I'm living under my sheets
Something that occurs every time my body's asleep
But I can't hep feeling that it's meant to be
Like some sort of twisted reality.

It's real in hell while heaven stays fake,
But not even heaven can fix my mistakes,
And a year goes by that's strictly cold,
And my hands are numb down to the bone,
And the carousel goes round and round again,
And my soul grows old in an icy domain.
