from by Tenonsaw



When I was young
I found time to waste
But now that I'm older
I can't shake the taste

And now I sleep with my eyes open
And sing with my hand on my heart
And I pray that one day
You will see that I suffer
I suffer for the sake of our art

What have we done?
What have we done anyway?

Why doubt yourself
When you can doubt another?
Or each other?

These days I sleep
With a gun under my pillow
And my finger on the trigger
In my mind

And I find
That I sleep more soundly
Even though I am alone

What a dream!
