NIGHTS-
How many nights do i have to spend staring down that same stupid grin?
or should i list the ways you destroy me? i wouldn't know where to begin.
Where there was once life, now a hollow ribcage bares its soul, as you let me go. Hand in your bedroom eyes, you're going to need them at your bedside. Drink down your guilt laced with pride, feel the choke as it makes its way inside. And how i loathe the way you say, " I think we're better off this way ".
Pen to paper, write this down, in seas of memory we all drown.

SWEET TOOTH-
Don't sugarcoat this things for me, you've rotted out my last sweet tooth, a cavity inside my heart that just needed to hear the truth. Kill me with the truth, i'll never suit your mood. What would it take for you to spit it out? I hear the cracking in your spine, and i must decline that this was ever what i had in mind. I see your smile, it use to be mine.

3293 GREENWAY DRIVE-
3293 Greenway Drive, such a different place in such a different time, where there was never a reason to try to run and hide. Such a different future planned from the start, friends would stick together and now we just fall apart. And thats where we'll stay, alone and afraid of the hate, the greed, the malice, and the need to survive what is left of you and me. I Will Learn To Live You Down.

COLD WOOD FLOORS-
Winter lock your hands with mine and we will drift on just fine, i swear. Winter, are you losing sleep hanging from the sheets? Are your worst od dreams filled with you and me? Rise up from your sleep. Cold wood floors beneath your feet guide you through windows to meet , snow in your winter clothes, your gaze unfurls as warmth soon follows. Forever, i see us standing, forever i see us hand in hand.

SLEEPING-
And now you're sprawled across the floor, in the doorway we once stayed all night. Can we move on from this, because i am tired of having the same dream every night. Sever your tongue, cross out both eyes. I'm ashamed that it has come to this, i'm ashamed i let it get this far. i'm ashamed that you had to see us for who we really are. So much for happiness, I found you in ignorance. What will it take for me to get things right? It's hard for me to swallow my pride, it's hard for me to let this one die. I've been sleeping my whole life.

NOTHING-
There is nothing left for me here. Reliving the past through celluloid scenes does nothing when film is splitting at the seams. Hollow words spoken from hollow tongues kill whatever meaning we ever had. We will mean nothing. We wont mean shit. And I am so afraid that the choices i have made are the reasons no one cared. They're the reasons no one stayed. To those near, and those we love the most, I propose a solemn toast to the greatest disappointment you've found in me, to the greatest disappointment that I am.
