My world has gone black

When I call out Your Name Do you Hear's picture

If I hand you my heart and a knife, will you cut me? Shred my heart to pieces? Or would you throw the knife away?

If I tell you I'm going to leave...would you beg me to stay? Or would you let me walk away?

I need money...I need out of Lakewood, out of washington....I need away from here. Everything is tainted with memories that I can't erase. It's driving me mad. I thought switching rooms would help, and it has. But staying in the house, doesn't help. There are still memories everywhere.

I want to forget her, erase her from my memory. And I can't. And I can't get alcohol to forget for's not like I have the money even if I knew someone who would. And it's not like I can take up smoking or anything, because I'm too poor to do that too. Fucking lack of a job....

I am quite literally to the point where I want to pack a few bags of clothes, grab my guitar and just leave. Pick a way to walk on the freeway and just hitchhike to some town where no one knows my name or my face. Where I can start over.

Do you know you're the reason I stay? That I try so hard? Do you notice that I need you?

Would you notice if I just left and never returned?

Yes you, my nerd that I love so much. The YOU is you...would you notice?

More people have been slaughtered in the name of religion than for any other single reason. That, my friends, that is true perversion.

If you hand me your heart and a knife, it sounds like you're framing me for murder...
