Dark thoughts creeping through my head
Memories of the lost and dead
I try to stop to bring myself around
But my head won't listen to my conscience sound

I try so hard to make everything fit
But it all falls away into a bottomless pit
My feelings obscure and my memories lost
I want all the answers but I don't know the cost

I write these lines to get rid of the pain
These words on the paper like an inky stain
I vent with my pen and make the pain go away
So in the morning I won't have to say

I try so hard to make everything fit
But it all falls away into a bottomless pit
My feelings obscure and my memories lost
I want all the answers but I don't know the cost

In a second I'll feel better when it's all said and done
And tomorrow regret all these rhymes that I've spun
But right now is pure feeling, straight from my heart
My conscience and mind both tearing me apart.

I tried so hard to make everything fit
But it all fell away into a bottomless pit
My feelings obscured by the memories lost
I reach for the answers no matter what the cost

Tomorrow will change, everything will be new
All that remains is what I once said to you,
I can't be perfect but I can still try
I beg your forgiveness for making you cry

The rain falls down and drowns my pain
No matter what happens I can't be the same
I give it all up and walk away
Put down my pen and throw these words away.
