it was an act of unusual cruelty
& i meant nothing by it.
i put the words down
but they never come out right.
i try to explain myself
but no one can understand.
my words get tangled & misshaped
& the secrets that i keep
press down on me harder & harder every day.
i just want you to know
that it meant nothing
& i'm sorry.
because really
you're all that i could ever ask for.


Epiphany
Staind

your words to me are just a whisper
your face is so unclear
I try to pay attention
your words just disappear
'cause it's always rainin' in my head
forget all the things I should have said
so I speak to you in riddles because
my words get in my way
I smoke the whole thing to my head
and feel it wash away
'cause I can't take any more of this
I want to come apart
or dig myself a little hole
inside your precious heart
'cause it's always rainin' in my head
forget all the things I should have said
I am nothing more than
a little boy inside
that cries out for attention
yet I always try to hide
'cause I talk to you like children
though I don't know how I feel
but I know I'll do the right thing
if the right thing is revealed
'cause it's always rainin' in my head
forget all the things I should have said...
