All the screw-ups (countless) I've made in this life have been starting to take a toll. First, not graduating high school, second, not getting a job as soon as I turned 16-17 (my friggin teacher refused to give me paperwork for a work permit), third, my massive car payments, and I'm now on a quest to teach kids not to end up like me. I encourage children everywhere to succeed in school, pay attention, and stay away from drugs; even if it's just pot or alcohol. Otherwise, you'll end up a cynical, inept, apathetic fool like me. I now adopt the saying "The nail that sticks out is the first one to be hammered".

 

At this point, it seems that Dredg is one of the only bands that knows how I feel; Bug Eyes describes me to a pin needle:

 

Bring back those good ol' days

Nothing feels right

Nothing ever goes my way

I threw my future away

Now I'll walk alone out here in the cold

Wandering astray

Where's my future?

 

Gonna need a home

You'd expect the same, now, wouldn't you?

Wouldn't you?

 

Your journey back to birth

Is haunting you

It's haunting you

 

Your departure from the earth

Is haunting you

It's haunting you

 

Only those who accept

Will find that acceptance in return

We have been trimmed down like hedges

Told just to sit and wilt

And spit at each other from a distance

With constant resistance

From you

 

I'm gonna need a home

You'd expect the same, now, wouldn't you?

Wouldn't you?

 

Your journey back to birth

Is haunting you

It's haunting you

 

Your departure from the earth

Is haunting you

It's haunting you

 

It's been ten years strong

That's much too long

Time to do something good for my health

Time to do something good for myself

 

I've wasted all this time...

I've wasted all this time...

 

Your journey back to birth

Is haunting you

It's haunting you

 

Your departure from the earth

Is haunting you

It's haunting you
