Jesus Christ there’s no use for this

Judas there’s no choice but to do it

Predestined to see Mother Earth from fleshy knees tell us there’s no fucking need to do this watch me pray in the street

While the false Christians loot us

Let’s go after the misguided

Open fire on the looters

I got one by the Church’s Chicken

Meanwhile I’ve got my knife in supremacy they bleed out black, white and red, you see

Staple this to your page

Overnight, Attack me with a pen and I’ll show you how they torture men with pliers

Deep revelation in your eyes

Twisted knives leave the cracks in your hear

Deep paradise rips every fountain of youth that breaks you apart just sit back and watch the world cry

Beat me against everything

As long as it senses into me

But you could never see

So I’ll read this with everything

Except a care

Because this is a FUCK YOU

Goodbye, Lullaby

I’ve been on a ledge

I’ve slept on the bench

Been in on the debt

Forgiving their heads

On the emotional edge

Probably the only thing I’ll live to regret

Demand it

But don’t give enough of respect

I never hit my enemies with revenge because hate holds no spot within even a heart so cringed

pressure on my neck like guillotine

I pretend it’s barely effecting me

I promise I’m okay but it’s killing me

Rain and thunderstorms destroying

Because I don’t thread through the paper without scribbling ink on the floors

I am the six-foot-three gingerbread man swaying back and forth like a mic stand

But I look up to myself like a fucking headstand

This can really feel good but hurt

I know when I get burned it’s just a guided singe

So hear what I say when

I say

Read some words

On my page

If my mind is in the gutter where does yours stay?



the clutter
