I don’t appreciate your phone call Wednesday night
As I was choking on a bottle we could light
These trembling hands and bad decisions that I made
On a mountain built of truth but climbed in vain (Nietzsche quote)

I remember waking up felt baked on the blistered sun
Should have taken chances from a bottle to the gun
Like a Prozac zombie trapped in memories that fade
Constant state of fog and a great smile so full of grace

caught in a trap, IM caught in the rafters I
Committed all my crimes
I bet that you believe that you’re the one
Who saved me from that life
And oh I heard your words and damn deceiving
Telling stories way to fake
To make it look like I’m the one to blame

caught in a trap, hanging from the rafters I
Admitted all my lies
and in the end you see images you want
Through your closed eyes
we both got a secret you’re damn conceited
Kicking, screaming, calling names, but we both know
That you’re the one to blame

Started working harder to prove all the voices wrong
They were trapped in side my head but suddenly they’re gone
And I’ve made it out a battered soul no worse for wear
This all made me smarter and I feel a lot less scared

Been a long long time but now I feel our paths are stuck
Every couple years I know you’ll suddenly pop up
Well it kills me not because of fear or false conjecture
But from all the wishing that your car stalls in those Chicago Winters!!!
