Darkness

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
 

Look at me getting delivered at the hospital

That’s me just sitting on my bike because I couldn’t pedal

There goes my prom and my sweet sixteen party

That’s me in college acting drunk and rowdy

O look that’s my best friend and my room-mate

Now that’s me as an in-mate

There I go smoking and taking drugs

I’m always scratching my arms and blaming the bugs

Now why did I go join that gang?

Because there I am about to bang

I saw my life flashed before me while staring down the barrel of a gun

Now here I lay calm and numb

Who would have thought it would end like this

Me laying dead surrounded by darkness.
