Give - Don't Grieve

To the right, I feel not strong enough…steal away the pain 
To the left, I feel my heart fading slowly…but surely. 

Give and you shall be a receiver
Don’t grieve for me…there’s a healing process
Beyond the pain of losing you

Sometimes, I ask myself if I’m insane
All of the crimes that I’ve committed…uhuh!

Give and you shall be a receiver
Don’t grieve for me…there’s a healing process
Beyond the pain of losing you

Get into war…we are weak…like silent bees without stingers…
Like silent wars rolling through our heads… 
Somewhere I swim...
I need to work out at the gym
I need to learn to love myself......... 
I’ll bring you not on my level...
my eyes are burning constantly like a wild fire
We had a flat tire.....oh well!

Give and you shall be a receiver
Don’t grieve for me…there’s a healing process
Beyond the pain of losing you

We fall out of order like articulate, purple beads 
Raise your heads from on high 

Give and you shall be a receiver
Don’t grieve for me…there’s a healing process
Beyond the pain of losing you

Watch the skies as they collide…I die
We all need a truth to hold on to… 

Give and you shall be a receiver
Don’t grieve for me…there’s a healing process
Beyond the pain of losing you

Sick of feeling blue…sick of feeling frustrated 
Sick of feeling for you… 

Give and you shall be a receiver
Don’t grieve for me…there’s a healing process
Beyond the pain of losing you

Bow down to honor 
And remember

Give and you shall be a receiver
Don’t grieve for me…there’s a healing process
Beyond the pain of losing you

Don’t make the same mistakes as I did…
I’m masked with shame and I ain’t crying 

Give and you shall be a receiver
Don’t grieve for me…there’s a healing process
Beyond the pain of losing you

Hell, I would be if I lost you…
Face the end…there will be an end 

Give and you shall be a receiver
Don’t grieve for me…there’s a healing process
Beyond the pain of losing you

 Control me not, for I have strength 
To beat you…. 
VOICES! 
VOICES! LEAVE………… 
Forgive me…for that scream, God…
