The Uneducated O.A.P


There's a crushing emptiness in my head

A half glance at the pills and bottles by the bed

Well that didn't work, I'me just a skull full of insane

There's too many carriages on me train

There's no one to help me, I've tried being dead

The mushy stuffs full of despair and dread

Sometimes the lightest loads are the heaviest to carry

Gotta move on I cannot tarry

Good day neighbour, great day, you and yours alright over there?

The words on my lips are not the ones in the room upstairs

The spinning in my head has no stops

Its time for pills and removing bottle tops

There's a battle raging tween the grey matter cells

The winner returns to normality

The loser Descends into Hell


Cause that's the way it is
