    You Should've Listened

    You Should've Listened

    My mind is so twisted, you should've listened, when my demons tried to warn you, play with us we'll posses you too.

    Addiction

    Meth, heroin, crack cocaine, one person's love is another person's pain. Doesn't matter if you shoot snort or smoke, all that matters are promises you broke.

    Forgive Me

    Forgive Me

    I wasn't aware that my love was a chain. I never noticed that you had become my prisoner. I must've pushed you behind the bars of care and clinginess unwittingly, please forgive me. I know that you hated these bars, but believe me I was high when I caged you. The slight chance that you might love me sent me to heaven and I sang love songs with the angels. The kisses you gave me after telling me nobody would love me except you got me higher that the empire state, with this infatuation I would've rode to space and came back resistant to the force of gravity.
