Why Did You Have To Go

Promises brake like shattering glass The night cries out for the light Stars replaced with water droplets Friends you thought you had were never their Just reflections in the merrier Can't catch smoke with finger grabs And when is all said and done You remember the real reason you when numb You cried so hard you almost puked How could the strongest love you knew Turn so violently agents you And when you look around for comfort All you find is a empty bead and cold blanket You tried so hard to lessen when others have problems Yet when it comes time for you to unload Everyone seems to vanish, alien abductions Is this why scorpions huddle together when its cold They know they can only find comfort with in them selves, crazy psycho killers And it seems that no matter where you go You meet dead ends and every rode You get so tiered of being lost you don’t care who finds you Not even a cannibal, hush now lambs And you get so angry you hold the world hostage, bank robbers And you have a grudge with everyone for no apparent reason, Oscar Maybe its because you know happy endings don’t exist Life sucks And then you die Only to be unsatisfied
