There are so many things in my life That just seem to get forgot My brain is a dampend sponge Stuffed in my head that has begun to rot I can't remember Sh#t! In my simple life from day to day I can't blame any of it on God For it's my own fault that I am now this way Younger days of partying Along with the medication that I'm now on today Keep wiping my memory slate clean Causing all memories to quickly fade away Forget,forgot,forgotten... Those three words to me are all the same Sitting in a tub full of missing memories With a rotting sponge that is clogging the drain

    I feel your pain brother I realy do. Look up a weed called wild lettus. It can help you with your sleep and your memory. I have been using it ocasionaly and it has helped me. In fact they have been trying it with altimers patients to improve their memory.
