I thought up this song today...I only have part of the tune...but let me know what you think, if you happen to read it..its a little long, but i cant change it...
oh well.

Plastic Passenger

A memory of this- graceful, desperate rain
Its permeating my brain
And eating the last remains of a relic
I long since lost
Eagerly
I open my mouth to taste it
To find its all lies and shit
I havent dealt with in the last couple years
Back when happy was an emotion
Not just an empty notion
That I wish on every night
Or every day thats long since lost its light

And I'm losing at this game of life
My tiny plastic car is damaged
The plastic passenger is riddled with strife
She wishes to be let out
Of this game
To get away from this doubt
That follows her
Whatever road she takes
Whatever choice she makes

And I'm losing...

Then running to the forest -to be consumed
By the dreaded clocks of misery
The tick tick tick their cry reminds me
Yes, I'm doomed.
Then realization kicks in
Its slaps me cross the face
The light dims
I frown at the darkness
It'd be a bigger mess
Were it real...

And I'm losing at this game of life
My tiny plastic car is damaged
The plastic passenger is riddled with strife
She wishes to be let out
Of this game
To get away from this doubt
That follows her
Whatever road she takes
Whatever choice she makes

And I'm losing...

But we will all reach retirement eventually
We will all throw out the plastic cars
And count our money
And our life cards
And grin
If we win
Or sigh
If we die...

And I'm losing at this game of life
My tiny plastic car is damaged
The plastic passenger is riddled with strife
She wishes to be let out
Of this game
To get away from this doubt
That follows her
Whatever road she takes
Whatever choice she makes

And we will all forget about this plastic passenger
This pink plastic passenger
My pink plastic passenger
Plastic passenger...
