State of the World


Why are you pushing me?
Can’t you tell I’m about to snap!
What are you offering to me?
Is this an attempt to make me relapse!
.... .... .... .... .... .... ....
I can’t take it, it’s to much
I’m loosing touch
Sanity is slipping through my clutch
Taking punch after punch
To the pit of my gut
Oh yeah! What luck!
Feel like a pair of old shoes
Walked on hard and abused
Sick of singing the blues
Life feels like I’m watching the news
Wish I could knot the noose before I spit out another loose tooth
Was told I have a lot to lose
To tell the truth, I don’t see the proof
So what is it you expect me to do?
I swallow my pride
Been left burning at the wayside
To stubborn to hide
The light inside has withered and died
So can’t you see why it’s no surprise
When I open my third eye
All I see is my own demise
I’m sick and tired of watching the world die
It’s enough to make a grown man cry
That’s right, it brings a tear to my eye
Knowing all were left with is ...why
.... .... .... .... .... .... ....
There was once a time we knew who to blame
We could call it by name
But now things have changed
And will never be the same

    Ask a silly question maybe - have things got worse? Or was the past 'the bad old days' too?

      I think I might be much more obvious when you have a child, for example I was full of hope when I was growing up but now that I brought someone else into this mess I have a lot more to fear it feels
