Loose.

Times like these
Venus wasn’t so far away
as the bridges burned,
I didn’t know what to do
Was it my fault?
Pyro or not, it couldn’t be
I didn’t set this fire
but I enjoyed watching it burn
Is that wrong?
It can’t be, Venus is beside me
he smiled and looked right through me
maybe I should be happy
I couldn’t tell but he did,
told them all I burned it down
that’s Venus for you though
playing tricks, while walking in or out
no care for the devastation,
lacking remorse,
he left all of us to cry over and clean his mess
that’s Venus though, ya know

Lost.

Diamond eyes, I just couldn’t seem to find
but to run away means never having to hide
will they come and will they follow
or will they stay and fail to thrive
I can show you the way,
I won’t promise you that
don’t trust me though,
It seems I’ve misplaced my hat
A rebellion or a leader,
what’s your take on necessity?
this ride’s been a doozy,
but will the lord hear my plea
I guess not for now,
so let’s just wait and see

Enough

It’s funny enough
that yesterday is gone,
because the past is the past
and today was tomorrow
so you can cut ties and relax
but, oddly enough
there is an end to this line
and sadly enough,
we’re all running out of time
oh the days of our lives
lost but never forgotten
for when it is time to go
accept this life,
was just time borrowed
at least it was funny enough

Timbuktu

Timmy and I were drinking all night
When we came across three girls under a street light
They invited us over, and off we went
Timmy and I were totally spent
But, they were three
And, we were two
So I buk one, and Timbuktu

wade.

engulf yourself in alcohol,
as we let the acrimony consume us all
and follow me into the flames
in preparation for this life to fade
we’ll wade through the river styx,
and yet the deity is out of mind
we can float on burnt crucifix,
false hopes and dreams,
they will burn as well
but happily passing with a smile
the time will come,
and we’ll love this hell

the Phantom

Dead by dawn
as dusk leaves horizon
lost in deception
but death never finds him
a phantom in the night
his path has subsided
no reasons at all like
rising tides or passing time and
he will need some protection
for the angels have gone
left him alone, now
the reaping’s begun
a phantom in the night
returns out of habit
fueled with rage, hide
your soul or he’ll grab it
failing to listen, oh how
he loves that decision
he’ll find death by dawn
with the immortal precision
so as dusk leaves horizon
there ends the inception
a long dark night, the
phantom happened to find him

You Can’t Win

You can’t win
You just can’t win,
no matter what you do
Jack Black said it once, he had a clue
How can you win if you’re always gonna lose?
its the why life goes you have to understand
there’s gigantic mountains, there’s deep quick sand
but don’t fight, or you’ll only make it worse
you must learn to let go of that purse
the person stealing it probably needs it more anyway
but hey,
at least you’re still alive, so why complain?
because of how you lost instead of gained?
you have to remember that you just can’t win
Once you do, your life will begin
