Life.. has betrayed me once again

I accept that some things will never change.

I’ve let your tiny minds magnify my agony

and it’s left me with a chemical dependency for sanity.

Yes, I am falling… how much longer ‘till I hit the ground?

I can’t tell you why I’m breaking down.

Do you wonder why I prefer to be alone?

Have I really lost control?

I’m coming to an end,

I’ve realized what I could have been.

I can’t sleep so I take a breath and hide behind my bravest mask,

I admit I’ve lost control

Lost control…

Jump, if you want to, ‘cause I’ll catch you, girl. I’ll catch you “fore you fall. Go as far inside as you need to, I’ll hold your ankles. Make sure you get back out. I’m not saying this because I need a place to stay. That’s the last thing I need. I told you, I’m a walking man, but I been heading in this direction for seven years. Walking all around this place. Upstate, downstate, east, west; I been in territory ain’t got no name, never staying nowhere long. But when I got here and sat out there on the porch, waiting for you, well, I knew it wasn’t the place I was heading toward; it was you. We can make a life, girl. A life.”
