Maybe it will all be better tomorrow. Maybe things won’t have to be this way. Maybe, at the edge of all of this sickness and sorrow, Is the dawn of some brighter day. I don’t feel like I can go on any longer. I don’t know just how to make this right. The pain and the strain of a loss of hope Getting only stronger Is strangling me ever so tight.

I'll be in a coffin sooner than I wanna be If I don't get some shit to help me see The struggles I'm gonna see. I'm altering the free things That are here for us all. Life is a strife to let you ignore the fall. I am an underachiever, A false believer. I am never home to receive my calls. I'm sure we could reach a preacher to deceive us all. Thank you for not thinking of me.
