"One day I'm gonna run away and never come back and when I come back I'm gonna be the knife master" - Jimmy The Rev Sullivan. Not much of a deep meaning but it makes me laugh.

So this is what its come to

Surrounded by sorrow

I close my eyes

Not wanting to see tomorrow

I Listen in

Their words are quick

I love them

Yet they make me sick

Who do I trust?

Who's side am I on?

I worry about them

From dusk till dawn

Sometimes I feel surrounded

Clouded with dismay

Yet I must be strong

And get through another day

They say life's a battle

I say it's war

Sometimes I wanna get even

Wanna even up the score

A cloud hangs over me

I'm drowning in the rain

I wanna reach the surface

And defeat the pain

Yet I'm stuck at the bottom

I can't get any air

I'm drowning in a Wave

Of my own despair
