    Night Watchman

    He’s coming
    I wish he would
    He’s here
    I wish he could
    My life feels like a thousand knives digging at my skin
    Yet digging doesn’t help
    Just want the night to come
    Close the doors
    Nothing
    Close my eyes
    Nothing
    Handful of pills
    Nothing
    Let the Night Watchman come
    Take my hand
    Lead me away
    Open his hand
    Blow in my face
    All my problems disappear
    Away I float
    Into the night
    Accompanied by only the
    Night Watchman

    Friends

    Friends


    Do I have any?
    Does anyone have any?
    They stab you when you not looking
    They sleep with your woman
    What is the use?
    Perpetually lonely
    Can’t stand people
    If I met you on the street
    Would you remember my name?
    NO
    Are you my friend?
    Didn’t think so
    Didn’t expect it to be so
    Can you love me?
    Can you like me?
    NO
    I don’t like myself
    Two faced, Three faced
    Nobody sees the real you
    Nobody sees the real me
    Closed off from the rest of the world
    Who needs the heartache or headache?
    More people in your life
    More stress in your life
    Less feeling in your life
    Why live then
    Friends don’t care
    Don’t have any
    Don’t want any
    None want me
    I am like a poison running rampant in the body of Society.
    Society that is a joke as well
    Civilized, yeah right
    A bunch of animals ruled by there emotions
    Or lack of
    Looking for one more thing to purchase, take, or throw away
    Animals in cages of rules
    A zoo built in our minds
    Mental bars trying to hold in the impulses that can’t be caged
    Our society is built on lies
    Muhammad, God, Jehovah, Buddha
    All looking at us
    Scrutinizing us
    Ready to slap us like a misbehaving child if we step out of line
    Are any of them really there?
    Just another set of bars holding the zoo together
    Do it Pull the trigger, cut too deep, pop the pills, step in front of the bus
    Release yourself from you cage
    Flip off the zoo keepers and free yourself
    Yet Im stuck in the cage
    Looking out at the passing tourist
    Unable to free myself
    And wanting nothing more then to run free again.
